A red painted continuous-arm Windsor chair with a beaded bow and baluster turned legs and arm supports. The well carved saddle seat showing the paint history on the underside and the blunt seat front ready for leather. The legs are nicely raked and the chair presents itself well.
Rhode Island, 1785-1800. 36" high,18" wide, 18" deep. Red paint over black over salmon. No repairs, good structural condition. Careful inspection of the tacking pattern on the forward underside of the seat indicates that originally this chair had an upholstered or "stuffed" seat. This fine example shows the influence of the New York City style. See Nancy Goyne Evans volume "Windsor Chairs".
