Side Chair, Chippendale, Likely by Eliphalet Chapin
East Windsor, Connecticut
A most successful statement of American Chippendale. (Dean Fales)
Date/Period: 1775-1785 - SOLD


Side Chair, Chippendale, Likely by Eliphalet Chapin East Windsor, Connecticut A most successful statement of American Chippendale. (Dean Fales), entire view

Measurement: Height: 38.75"; seat height: 18"; width: 22.5"; depth: 17.5"

Material: Cherry; white pine

Condition: Excellent

Additional Information: “One of the handsomest Chapin-type splats” as published on
page 58 of The Furniture of Historic Deerfield by Dean A. Fales Jr. …Or, as written
in American Furniture At Chipstone by Rodriquez Roque on page 130 describing a
nearly identical chair the author states “the most intricate type of splat found on Chapin
chairs”.

Stylistically, the form and details of construction are identical to other known Chapin
side chairs made of cherry with Connecticut histories; they are very similar to chairs
made in Philadelphia where Chapin apprenticed for four years. A Masterful
interpretation emphasizing form and reducing ornament to a minimum. (Roque)
