Antique Child’s Windsor Sack-back Armchair, RARE
New York City, circa 1790 - SOLD


Antique Child’s Windsor Sack-back Armchair, RARE
New York City, circa 1790, entire view

This compact and robust profile following the pattern of an adult’s chair…scaled for a
child speaks to NYC shop traditions; possibly by Walter MacBride (Active 1792-1797;
still managing a chair shop in 1803, although primarily operating a hauling business) or
Thomas Ash I and William Ash I. This little gem displays typical New York bow ends,
they taper then flair forming square terminals (flattened bow face); this example displays
the distinctive tenon securing the bow within the arm rail mortice. Old black paint, very
good surface; minor imperfections consistent with age and use. (Height: 23.5"; seat
height: 10.5"; width: 17.25"; depth: 10.25")

A Rare Children’s Windsor Rocking Settee,
Original Paint & Decoration, A Unique Composition
Outstanding diminutive example of Windsor seating in remarkable original condition, C. 1810 - SOLD


Antique Children's Windsor Rocking Settee/Bench in Original Paint and Decoration, 19th Century, angle view

The decorated slat-back is above eight arrow-shape spindles flanked by folksy curved/bowed arms featuring button terminus; carved, incised and shaped plank seat raised on raking turned legs joined by “H”-stretcher. Possibly an experimental design featuring a standard bent back with “flat sticks” (period term) combined with wonderful quirky arms and, button arm tips, the turned arm supports bulging outwards. Also, it is interesting that the design of the back is clearly circa 1810…Yet, other features date to the late 18th century, especially the shape of seat at each end; the three-section bamboo turnings rather than updated four-section bamboo-work; the “H” plan stretcher system rather than box-style bracing. Please see pp. 211 to 217 in Nancy Evans’s American Windsor Chairs where you will view similar mixtures in design.
Another subtle feature, a New York City shop tradition, are the grooved double rings across the lower third of the entire back from post-to-post. (We note that the seat is carved of white pine rather than the NYC favored yellow poplar.) The tablet features hand painted grape leaves, tendrils and vines centering conch shells…strawberries for color; the arrows display green leafy-devices on red stems with little soft-blue flowers, the back is flanked by similarly decorated posts. The painted surface remains in a most high state of originality with “as expected” and minor wear, overall patina is great, areas of “expected” thin paint such as arms and seat edges display a deep, rich, and smooth brown color. The overall integrity is without compromise.

The turned tapering stiles with finials join two arched slats; shaped arms on ring and vasiform turned supports continuing to splayed legs joined by double stretchers. As is so often the case, the front medial stretcher was replaced during an early period of use; a strong hardwood stick facilitated a make-do repair. The stick has developed a great patina and is pleasingly timeworn; the underside retains a smooth bark. (The splint seat displays age, however, it is not original.

Stylistically, a very different piece of seating furniture, perhaps inspired by Baltimore tradition, yet with Pennsylvania elements; architecturally interesting-perhaps unique.

The round cornered rectangular seat is dished and has an ornamental seat projection at front center; seats are raised on legs with ring turned bands under seat, down-weighted incised baluster above reverse baluster terminating with a knop above a small turned foot. The legs are joined by a delicate turned box stretcher. The chair is fancy grain painted in a style often found on central Pennsylvania pieces.
