Near Pair of Roundabout Chairs by a Single Maker in Same Shop, Original Surface New England, Circa 1775-1800 Maple


Near Pair of Roundabout Chairs by a Single Maker in Same Shop, Original Surface New England, Circa 1775-1800 Maple, entire view

The carved pillow [cushion]-crests on flat arms terminating with robust out-scrolled [spurred] handholds having notched returns are raised on ring turned tapered posts centering solid vasiform splats set in bold molded shoes; square slip-seats over

deep skirt-profile concealing close stool, one chair remains fitted for a pot. The frontal cabriole legs feature volute scrolled knee returns and relief carved molding conforming to upper profile; rear legs are bottle/vasiform and reel form. Both chairs retain nearly 100% of first brown paint displaying a good patina. One chair is a tad taller (full height), otherwise they display the same shop traditions and were likely made from the same templates. Excellent condition; one chair measures 32.5” at pillow…the other 30 5/8” measured at pillow; chairs are both full height with seat height being 16.5”.

Provenance:

Ex Collection of Miriam and Arthur Spector;
Example with potty seat: Ex Wayne Pratt, Inc. and Ex Israel Sack.
The other example: Ex H.L. Chalfant.

Literature:

Chair with potty seat is illustrated in Albert Sack's the New Fine Points of Furniture, as "Better," page 64.
