Gilpin is the second earliest documented Windsor chairmaker in Philadelphia, the first being Jedediah Snowden. From 1755–61, Gilpin’s workshop stood on land owned by Samuel Powell I (d. 1756). In 1762 Gilpin sold six low-back Windsor chairs to Garrett Meade at 15 shillings apiece. This is one of the few known extant Gilpin low back Windsor chairs.
