20TH CENTURY CHIPPENDALE STYLE BALL & CLAW SET OF 6 DINING CHAIRS
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
We're pleased to offer for sale this wonderful set of 6 20th century Chippendale style carved ball & claw foot dining chairs with rush seats. We imagine these classic 18th century design chairs we're made within the last 75 years in somewhere like New York / Gardner MA / or a North Carolina company. The period examples regularly realize ~1/1.5k a chair throughout the United States premier auction houses. This is a chance to get the look at a fraction of the cost. These chairs have powerful & crisp carved ball and claw front feet on cabriolet legs with an additional cross stretcher for extra support. All the joints are tight and sound on this set. The center rail and horizontal rail on the splat have a matching cupid's kiss decoration. The splat design is quite attractive with a good use of negative space in the piercings. The rush seats all hold tight and are free from holes and breaks. We noted a ~1" loss of rush on one of the chairs, it doesn't impede the use or stability at all as these rush seats are built up in layers. It's hard to tell from the photos provided we can happily send one over to you if you require immediate action before we get the listing updated.
