An especially attractive pair of small side chairs with carved, urn-shaped splats, blind fretwork decoration on the forward-facing elements, and plank seats.

The low relief carving is very capably done, and the maker moved the front stretcher back, connecting the side stretchers and allowing room for the sitter to fold his feet underneath.

An attractive and useful pair of small chairs.

English, ca. 1750 – 70

Width: 19’; Depth: 15 ½”; Seat height: 18”; Overall height: 37”
