Front seat width: 23”, seat height: 17”, overall height: 43 1/2”. This style of American chair has its roots in the 18th century. It was made by an experienced cabinet maker with a good eye for design. A four slat, ladderback chair with boldly executed and detailed ball finials. It retains most of its original dry, red painted surface. This rocker has wooden, square pegs securing the mortise and tenon joints. The maple arms have long since had their paint worn away as expected, and display some striped wood surface beneath. Its unique deerskin seat is secured with leather stitching. The nicely styled rockers appear to be made of chestnut. The entire chair has a warm, original, dry, red surface that is very desirable to advanced Americana collectors. CONDITION: This chair is in a wonderful state of preservation, considering its age and use. It has great patina throughout. The wood pegs protrude due to shrinkage as expected. Chair retains about 95 percent of its original paint. There is loss of paint around the seat and arms from use. Great patina and dry surface throughout. A very architecturally appealing chair. DRG
