About

This chair is an exact reproduction in every detail to the original. This exact replica of an American Colonial Period Baroque/Queen Anne Style balloon seat armchair has now been attributed to the Wistar group with similarities to the Stenton Hose Group by the highly respected Philadelphia furniture expert Alan Miller and is pictured and referenced in an article entitled “Flux in Design and Method” by Alan Miller in the yearly publication entitled American Furniture 2014. The original chair from which this chair was copied sold privately for $345,000. Materials: Locally harvested American black walnut / linen and wool. The needlepoint is a period correct pattern. Construction: The chair is constructed exactly like the original with handcut mortise and tenons, both wedged and through, as well as sliding dovetails for the arm supports. This chair is considered by furniture makers to be one of the most challenging and difficult pieces to make due to the fact that just about every line of the chair is a curve. Most of the parts of this chair must be shaped by hand. Size: 24" length 33" width 43' tall.

About The Maker

Mosart, Inc.

Mosart, Inc.

View Profile
As a wooden artifacts conservator, lecturer, and furniture scholar treating and studying furniture throughout the world’s history for over 30 years; a new age of creativity and design inspiration has blossomed forth. Mosart’s designs and their material usage strive to combine the forms, decorative treatments, and hand joinery utilized by the great craftsman of the past with the LEED Building and Green Practices of the 21st century. The decoration and sculptural elements used in our furniture derive their inspiration from the art movements and artists of the late 19th and 20th centuries including “Abstract Expressionism”, “Abstract Illusionism” Cubism, Constructivism, and Neo-Plasticism. Mosart is striving to elevate furniture back to an art form while also designing and building furniture that employs the use of recycled, up-cycled, and LEED certified materials. The furniture produced by Mosart are individual titled works of art that employ many traditional decoration techniques including gilding, carving, inlaying, and mosaic work. The furniture often incorporates “old stock” exotic and domestic wood and wood from naturally downed trees in its production. In our furniture, we are essentially painting and sculpting with wood where the juxtaposition of elements, the color, variance in grain, and the refractive qualities of the wood are used as an artist uses paint from his pallet or sculptural elements to create a piece for functional fine art.
