Chippendale Arm Chair


This Chippendale Chair is a SERIOUS true antique. We secured this chair from a family in Hamilton, MA who indicated to us that it was in their family for four generations. The upholstery on the chair was awful and was not original. However, to discover the true age of the chair we needed to pull the upholstery and determine the padding contents. We did so, and they were right. This chair is an early 1800’s chair and has its original straw cushioning which we kept inside it. We were also able to determine that the chair has been upholstered four times before us. We picked out a gorgeous damask style fabric, added a thin cushion for comfort and had it professionally re-upholstered. This chair, with its thick and intricate carvings, knuckles, ball and claw feet, and original finish is one of the finest pieces in Turtle Cove. It would work in just about any antique or traditionally styled room. Simply a beautiful and stunning piece. #5160
