Necessary Chair, Delaware Valley,
5-Slat Ladder-back Armchair, 
Deep Apron, A Superb Country Chamber Chair, 
Close Chair in Original Surface, 
Circa 1760, entire view

The slats being arched on top and bottom edges, the pointed bulb finals, the plain turned stiles, the flattened undercut arms, the ball and ring feet and baluster turnings are confidently assigned to Delaware River Valley shop traditions. The turner and joiner, makers of this chair, were quite competent; small size, successful proportions; apron design and slip seat all work in concert. The deep apron with fantastic profile joining the block and turned posts is secured by thirty-two wood pegs, eight each leg. The potty-board and the frame on which it sat…facilitating the chamber pot is long gone, all else fine and original. (Height: 43.5"; seat height: 17.5"; width: 24.75"; depth: 17.25")
