Pair, Hepplewhite Side Chairs, Original Condition

The unique design employed by the maker is uncommon in 18th century Connecticut furniture. The flaring stiles combine effectively with the flowing curves and delicate piercing of the cross rails. The absence of stretchers, and diminutive proportions suggest a date of about 1800. The chair was found in Norfolk, where it had been owned for many years.
