Massachusetts Slat-Back Armchair

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A rush seated, ochre painted, slat-back armchair, characteristic of Coastal Massachusetts; possibly as far South as the Islands off the Cape. Surface appears quite old or even original and is retouched only in areas of skilled repair. Hand wear has polished the finials and the arm top 'cookies', down to the underlying wood.
