This masterful armchair is a tour de force
of carved and turned elements, the back of this chair is reminiscent of the later art
nouveau style during this century. The finials are magnificently turned, all original,
including casters. The old oxidized black surface is original. This chair is related to
chairs illustrated in Furniture in Maryland 1740-1940. We consider this chair a
"great" chair as it makes a very strong visual statement as being something very
beautiful and masterful.
