Reconstructing the Skokloster Chair : 17th Century Upholstery (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats, vars första frö såddes vid ett studiebesök på Skokloster slott för två år sedan, behandlar barockens stoppningshistoria och en rekonstruktion av Skoklosterstolens stoppning. Målet med uppsatsen är att skapa ett intresse för historiska stoppningar och dess tekniker för både privatpersoner och yrkesmän.

Undersökningar av litteratur, inventarielistor och Skoklosterstolarna själva ger anledning att tro att Skoklosterstolarna tillverkades 1708 till slottets dåvarande ägare Abraham Brahe. Som tidigare publicerats av Johan Knutsson finns det skäl att tro att stolarna tillverkats lokalt. Nya analyser presenteras i uppsatsen som styrker denna hypotes. Vidare redovisas vilka material som använts i originalstoppningen, identifierade bland annat med mikroskopering. I största möjliga mån har dessa material använts vid rekonstruktionen.

Abstract [en]

This article came out of a visit to Skokloster castle two years ago. It comprises of a written part on 17th century upholstery and a reconstruction of the Skokloster chairs' upholstery. The aim of this article is to awaken an interest for historical upholstery and the techniques that were used.

The investigation of literature, possessions lists and the Skokloster chairs themselves give me the reason to believe that the chair was made in 1708 for the current owner Skokloster castle, Abraham Brahe. As has formerly been published there is reason to believe that a local joiner made the chair. New analyses introduced in this article support this hypothesis. Furthermore, the article shows on the upholstery material used in the chairs, identified in part by microscopy. Whenever possible these materials have been used in the reconstruction.

It is important that readers of this and any other article on the subject matter read with a critical eye. The history is full of exceptions and universally accurate conclusions are difficult to make.
