Mr. and Mrs. John Vine saw a display of commercial horn furniture at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis. When they returned home to Fayette, Ohio, the inspired couple ordered a large number of steer horns from a packing house in Texas and constructed their own furniture in the trendy style. This armchair was part of the Vines' homemade set.
