About

Circa 1875 Virginia bench-made walnut matched set of two armchairs and 12 side chairs; with shell carved knees, slippered front feet, wavy back splats, and distinctive flat serpentine cross-stretchers. Queen Anne manner American Centennial chairs commissioned by a prominent Lynchburg, Virginia family with business interests and homes also in the north. Details available to purchaser, if desired.
The drop-in balloon slip seats are covered in presumably original hand-stitched non-identical floral crewelwork.
The two armchairs are of the same back height and seat height, but 2" wider and 1" deeper than the 12 side chairs.
