Mary Todd Lincoln selected this simple wardrobe for use in her Springfield, Illinois home. The Museum owns a matching washstand. Both pieces are good examples of the taste of the Lincolns in their early married life. Both are decorated with pointed arches in each door panels, identifying them as basic versions of the Gothic Revival style, popular in the early 19th century
