Armchair, Turned Great to Chair with Heart and Crown Crest, a Classic Example
Connecticut, Circa 1740 to 1770
Maple and poplar - SOLD

Antique Armchair with Heart and Crown Crest, Connecticut, Circa 1740 to 1770, angle view

The swan's neck crest rail with a tulip head profile above the heart shape cutout is above four molded banister splats flanked by robust rear posts with ball-and-urn finials. The chair features upswept-out-swept arms with rolled grips, under which are turned medial stretchers joining front and rear posts. The generous trapezoidal seat is of woven rush, and is raised on turned legs joined by double stretchers; the front stretchers turned. (Overall the chair remains in very good condition and displays an old surface; the turned sections of front feet are replaced; rear feet extended as seen by darker wood. We note that color has been added to crest rail inviting further investigation; nonetheless, a robust chair for short money. (H: 44.75”, seat H: 15.5”, W: 26”, D: 21.5”)
