QUEEN ANNE 19TH CENTURY SLIPPER FOOT BURLED WALNUT CARVED ARM CHAIR
With our highest possible compliments we are delighted to offer you the very best Queen Anne 19th Century carved arm chair we have ever had the pleasure of handling. First off, this is a remarkable Centennial copy of the early 18th Century, Queen Anne masterpiece. There are only perhaps two or three known examples of the period version of this chair in existence. We just brought in a major collection of the very finest period Queen Anne American furniture and decorative art. We are starting the offerings with this remarkable piece. We are without explanation for this chair. We never knew there was a 19th Century, Centennial version of this American treasure. The form on this signed chair made by "Morrow" is remarkable. The heart formed chamfered back splat in burled walnut is simply a wonder. The form of the back rail crest of the chair is equally as fascinating. It has carved rolled arms, extravagantly fan carved cabriole knees, fully formed legs with four carved rosettes, superbly executed rear legs all flowing into stunning slipper carved feet. This chair is structurally wonderful having been professionally maintained with an important American furniture collection. The only flaw is a burled veneer chip of no significance. The two or three period copies of these chairs are all in important American furniture collections of the Peabody Essex, MFA Boston and the Winterthur. They all realized tens of thousands of dollars at sale. This is your chance to own a Centennial copy of the rarest Queen Anne arm chair there is for pennies against the cost of its period cousin. It is accurate in all respects. It is 24" wide from arm to arm, 22" in seat width, 17 1/2" in seat depth, 41" tall overall and has an 18" high seat. We certainly have a lot more expensive Queen Anne period chairs to offer you, but this one has been the most exciting to sell.
