Lot Essay

With its slim rear and medial stretchers with double-ringed conical ends, pronounced ring turnings at the back of the side stretchers and pad feet with distinctive ridges on the sides, this chair exhibits hallmarks of Rhode Island chairmaking from the mid-eighteenth century. Discussed by Jennifer N. Johnson, these features are seen on a group of approximately twenty examples recorded in the Rhode Island Furniture Archive at the Yale University Art Gallery (Jennifer N. Johnson, catalogue entries in Patricia E. Kane et al., Art & Industry in Early America: Rhode Island Furniture, 1650-1830 (New Haven, Conn., 2016), pp. 254-261, cats. 45, 46).
