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. The decorated surface is early and is found over original green paint. Other than typical paint losses the chair remains in great condition. (H: 29.75"; seat H: 14"; W: 13.5"; D: 14.75".)
