Set of Four Carved Classical Side Chairs, New York

$16,000per set


These chairs are of the type known as "side chairs," which fit nicely for example alongside either a chest or a card table in a hallway. Also, these may be considered "boudoir chairs" for use in a period bedroom, as they are highly decorative. The backs plats are quintessential Duncan Phyfe with hand-carved swags and bowties. While these chairs are generally related to the Phyfe workshop, other fine workshops of the time constructed these (i.e. Michael Alison, etc.). These chairs are in the French taste with their front legs shaped in the cabriole form embellished with incised paneled construction. See the side profile of these chairs and their pedigreed stance. These chairs are beautifully reeded and have a finely carved rosette joining the two reeded, curved splat elements.
