Shortly after we were married, we bought a number of Williamsburg reproductions on a trip to Williamsburg in 1941. Among the pieces we acquired was a set of ladderback Chippendale dining-room chairs, which we used for nearly twenty years in our dining room at Hudson Pines. We had always hoped that we might some day find a set of antique chairs of the same general design. Finally, in 1960, we found a set at Needham's and were delighted to be able to buy them. The Williamsburg reproductions have now been relegated to a guesthouse at Pocantico.
