Side Chair, Chippendale, Carved, Heart Pierced Splat
Likely Connecticut, Circa 1780

The chair displays an extremely well-developed splat and flamboyant crest rail with exaggerated ears and quarter fan; the owl splat variant with heart cutout at center is related to examples from both Connecticut and Rhode Island; however the maple slip seat frame is constructed of extremely thin stock; typically a Connecticut characteristic. The trapezoidal seat rails are molded; the corner molded legs joined by side, center and rear stretchers; small details such as chamfering to the backs of legs, the stile shaping (rear) and other nuances are finely executed. A lovely chair!
