LATE 19TH CENTURY VICTORIAN-ARTS & CRAFTY TRANSITIONAL PERIOD SET OF 6 TIGER OAK T-BACK DINING CHAIRS BY P. DERBY & CO.
GARDNER, MA CA. 1900
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.

Were pleased to offer for sale this great antique set of 6 golden tiger oak dining chairs by P. Derby & CO of Gardner, Ma and New York City. P Derby & co crafted chairs for all occasions with the best in our opinion being their leather tufted office chairs. They dominated early 20th century production and many of their catalogs can be viewed online through public resources. We've attached a photo file showing the direct image from the catalog showing this production run of design #860. The original reference material shown is not available with the listing it's solely for reference made available by a public museum.

Gardner, MA has a long history of chair & furniture making. It was a very prolific furniture hub home to many well known companies such as Heywood Wakefield & the Conant Ball company. This set consists of 5 side chairs and 1 arm chair. They are in a clean golden oak finish that absolutely glows and features a fine heavy flake tiger grain pattern. The vasiform splats are pierced and the cane seats are in great condition with no breaks, missing pieces, or runs. The chairs stand on graceful cabriolet legs with an additional cross stretcher for added support and stability. The catalog featured was from the year 1900-1901. In all reality these are probably late 19th century chairs as they're a transitional design between Victorian period and the coming American Arts & Crafts movement. At their peak they were the United States second largest chair manufacturer. P Derby & co continued to make furniture until they closed their shop in 1935.
