Queen Anne Side Chairs, Set of Eight
The ex-owner of this remarkable group of chairs assembled them during a 30-year period; they are all stylistically inspired by the same shop traditions. The yoke back and shaped stiles centered by vasiform splat received by the molded lower-splat shoe above trapezoidal slip seats. The front legs are of cabriole form with turned pad feet while the raking rear legs are turned and block/square with nicely molded edges. One upholstered seat frame is new with all others being original to individual chair; each chair is of similar color and surface patina; obviously with slight differences that are not noticed when circling the table. Each chair measures 40" in height; seat heights: 17"; front width: 19.75".

Sheraton Wing Chair
Period Sheraton easy chairs are uncommon and desirable... - SOLD
Considering the Chippendale style serpentine crest rail, this is a relatively early example of a Sheraton easy chair. The tall and slender form is quite desirable; almost a ladies chair. The narrow verticality is accentuated by extremely refined, and tall, delicately turned, tapering birch legs. The castors are original, a very nice feature. The already successful lines will be greatly improved by a competent upholster. (Height: 49"; seat height: 17"; width: 32.5"; depth: 32".)
