Paul Tuttle Armchair

About

Elegant, rakish and well-crafted armchair by California designer Paul Tuttle. Fabricated in small numbers by Stanley Reifel of Carpenteria, CA, circa 1966. This example was part of a set made for Mrs. Esther Bear and was illustrated in solo exhibitions on Tuttle at the Pasadena Museum of California Art in 1966 and the Santa Barbara Museum in 1978 (shown here). Beautiful details, including the splining on the back rail and the east-to-west curve to the seat. Walnut frame in original condition, with new machine caning replacing the broken original machine caning. Burned and etched signature underneath.
