Queen Anne Side Chairs, Set of Eight
Boston, walnut

Circa 1760 - SOLD

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 H; seat H: 17”; front W: 19.75”.
