This magnificent chair came to us from
a collection assembled by The Pebble Beach Plantation.
There are a number of pieces on our site from this
collection, which you should additionally view.
Satinwood has always been a most desirable
wood, and used on some of the finest pieces of English
19th century Hepplewhite furniture. Additionally,
the painting on this furniture style is truly exquisite,
and as many point out, it's unfortunate that these
painters did not sign their work, because the craftsmanship
is spectacular. Note the subtle painting on the arms,
the legs, and, of course, the shield. Note, in the
center of the shield is a beautifully painted woman;
this chair would certainly be a joy to live with,
as form and craftsmanship are of the highest order. See a
related painted chair below, illustrated in the Best
of Painted Furniture
, by Florence Dampierre.
This chair is in absolutely perfect
condition. As in the attached Dampierre example a
seat cushion would be appropriate.
