James Parrish crafts an iron chair

From the August 12, 1898 Skidmore Standard, page 1:

E. E. Tilton has quite an oddity in the way of an iron chair which he had James Parrish make for him. We don’t know why Mr. Tilton had the chair constructed as he doesn’t impress one as being so corpulent as to need such a substantial piece of furniture.
