Description A pierced splat cupid's bow crested Chippendale great chair. This imposing Chippendale arm-chair is made of maple and tigered maple. The profile of the crest and its pierced pattern suggest Rhode Island as an origin, as does the elongated and flattened double ball front stretcher. The design is a transition between the William & Mary with its carved front Spanish feet and the lighter look of the Chippendale. The chair has gained a mellow amber-toned varnished finish over the years. The over-all proportions and flaring silhouette of this chair's back, remind us of the beauty of fine American Colonial craftsmanship.

It appears that around the early 20th century, this chair had 4 new wooden pins (or pegs) added to strengthen the 2 side stretchers. After over 250 years the chair must have gained a wobble so pins were carefully placed into the old peg-holes. Wear consistent with age and use.
