William and Mary Tall Back Cherry Armchair, CT, Possibly Colchester



This stately chair has a very tall back, with beautifully sculpted splat that integrates nicely into the splat rail. The height of this chair gives it a commanding presence and its nicely sized seat is graciously inviting. Included below are images of one of a pair of English armchairs with a similar splat. One of the reasons for the possible Colchester attribution is that they often did out-of-the box stylistic interpretations of traditional forms. The crest follows a traditional tombstone motif and the chair finials are beautifully turned. The front cross-stretcher is delicately turned and the arms are nicely shaped into a downward scroll. This chair has good weight, as it is cherry, and overlaid with a shellac surface. Its condition is excellent and fully tightened. Note the bottoms of the feet which are usually very worn are nicely extended, with a most minimal reduction. Obviously, it led a good life.
