Set of Four Queen Anne Mahogany Side Chairs
Catalog#: Summer 2006
Category: Furniture - American
SubType: Chair
Origin: America-USA
Era: 18th Century

The chairs having yoked crests above sublime and slender vasiform splats of unusually refined delicacy, compass seats, cabriole legs with scalloped returns, and block-and-arrow turned stretchers, terminating in out-swept pad feet with intact under pads; the slip seats upholstered in fine hand-worked bargello flame stitch; the chairs in incredibly intact condition retaining original surface.

Undoubtedly the best set of four Boston walnut compass seat chairs to find market in many years; despite the rarity of these chairs, it is possible to find highly companionable mates to create an extended set of dining chairs.

Provenance: A Connecticut Historical Society
