This artfully made chair with footstool is one of only a handful of known similar examples. The conceptual thinking of its maker is clear as to its visual amusement, which evidently outweighs any practical use as furniture. Both The Smithsonian American Art Museum and Colonial Williamsburg have a chair, while Colonial Williamsburg recently acquired the only other footstool extant. The footstool at Colonial Williamsburg has four legs while our example has three. All of the known examples have slight color variations based on the placement of the various wood types used.
Styles / Movements Americana, Country, Folk Art
