Bannister Back Side Chair

Bannister Back Side Chair

Rare bannister back side chair in original reddish/brown stain, New England, possibly Connecticut River Valley, c. 1730-60. This chair has survived in remarkable condition having unusual seat height of 19 1/2". The original surface shows wear in the expected places – front stretcher, center of the bannisters, etc. The seat is old but not original. The overall height is 45 1/2" (to the top of the finial).
