Commentaires : This Highchair is located in the Doucet House at the Farmer's Bank of Rustico site. Built around 1770, the Doucet house is the oldest house in the Rustico area, and possible on all of Prince Edward Island. The residence was originally situated on Grand-Pere (now Cymbria) and was inhabited continuously by descendents of the Doucet families until 1982, when it was purchased as a summer residence. Soon it was offered by the owner for removal from his land or was slated to be torn down. The Farmer's Bank of Rustico moved the house to their site and began a full restoration in 2003. The Doucet house now houses a collection of early Acadian artefacts. The newer layer of paint is believed to have been added c.1950. From this we can assume that the highchair has been in use since it was constructed (1825-1850) until more recent times (1950 and later). No attempt has been made to remove the paint to show the wood and ox blood coloring beneath. Throughout the 19th century, Acadian created traditional furniture using hand tools, and as with textile production, the tools and techniques for making furniture was handed down from generation to generation. Chairs with plank seats, squared legs and posts are the most frequently encountered type of traditional Acadian furniture.
