Set of Four Mahogany Queen Anne Side Chairs, circa 1740-1760

$26,000per set


These are a very finely sculptured set of Queen Anne chairs, but at first blush, one might think this is a later variant of the fiddle back Federal chairs we see at the turn of the 19th century. These chairs are not that. Note the sumptuous curvature on the crest rail (see chair profile view) and also note how the ends of this yoke are molded beautifully into the vertical stiles (see front detail). Also, note the curvature of the leg front leg, it’s like the rear leg of a racehorse, ready to take off. Note the beautifully sculpted trifid foot, the claws are beautifully differentiated from the webbing. These are fine chairs, and came to us from an astute collector, who acquired them many years ago, in Chicago, from a noted dealer who felt these were Southern. Perhaps, because they were acquired in that part of the world. What is of interest to us is the very individualistic style the cabinetmaker expressed in the precision cut-out arches at the top of each piercing. Note the upper middle piercing stops shy of the other two.g stops shy of the other two. What we do know is that these chairs are early, the wood is very dense, and all is in first rate condition, having been re-glued et al. There are no breaks whatsoever. This set has a new, strong set of insert seat frames that are not yet covered, but we also have the originals (which are shown under upholstery). This work was done in the shop of Alden Anderson, one of the best in the field.
