To learn more about the history of the Paine Furniture co. you can read this excerpt taken from HarryRinker.com:
Leonard B. Shearer founded a cabinetmaker’s shop, located on Blackstone Street in Boston, in 1835. John S. Paine was his apprentice. By the end of the nineteenth century, Paine Furniture was a major American furniture manufacturer. The Boston Public Library’s 1880 Paine’s Furniture Company 170-page catalog is available on the internet. (https://archive.org/details/painesfurniturec00pain) Although Colonial Revival, generic, and Aesthetic design style pieces are present, Renaissance Revival design style furniture dominates. The wide range of forms and shapes is a testament to the breadth of furniture forms and shapes made by a large late-nineteenth century furniture manufacturer. There was no evidence of your Boston-style rocker.
In 1914, Paine built a ten-story, Classical Revival style building, designed by Densmore and LeClear, at 75-81 Arlington Street (consuming the entire block between St. James and Stuart) in Boston. The building housed the manufacturing, offices, and showroom for Paine Furniture. Paine Furniture sold the building in 1989. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
Paine Furniture is now Paine’s Patio, established by a sixth generation of the Shearer family in 2003. The store is located in Bourne, Massachusetts.
