New England Maple and Tiger Maple Queen Anne Side Chair Ca. 1750

A very fine quality New England Pre-Revolutionary War era chair in an excellent state of preservation. It appears to retain it’s original brown wash and finish. Vertical proportions suggest Connecticut or Massachusetts. A nearly identical example is illustrated in Antiques from the Israel Sack Collection, Vol. VI, P. 1614
