Rear posts with finials flanking splats and turned rail; turned arms with nodules joining front posts featuring projecting handholds. The trapezoidal seat is made of pine and is splendidly worn; the chair never had side seat rails; front rails are carved of oak. We believe the seat to be original. The chair retains red paint and displays a wonderful patina.
Date: 18th Century
Measurement: Height: 24"; seat height: 6.5"; width: 15"; depth: 11"
Material: Maple, ask and white pine
Condition: The vestiges of time and generations of use tell the story of this little chair. The loss to top splat is worn smooth; faces of front posts and the backs of rear posts are worn flat due to generations of toddlers using the chair as a walker as they learned to walk. A narrow strip of seat plank running front-to-back was long ago replaced and displays the same wear pattern of overall seat.
