Fashioned from oak, poplar, and hickory, it has survived in fine original condition, and retains a mellow old finish. The pad feet are turned from the solid of the front legs, and are identical to those found on Classic New York yoke-back rush-seated chairs.

Overall height 32 inches.

PROVENANCE: Discovered in the first decades of the twentieth century by the pioneer Americana collector Luke Vincent Lockwood (1872-1951) of Greenwich, Connecticut, and remained in the Lockwood family until the late 1970s.
