About

Pairs of these chairs are hard to find and these have no breaks or alterations. They have the beautiful style that many consider the finest of American Queen Anne chair design. They have a beautifully sculpted side profile (see below) and the balloon seat really puts this form in a class by itself. Note the splat and its relationship to splats on the attached Sack Good, Better, Best page; our chairs are full and well-developed. These chairs make a statement and are of the type found in the finest homes with Queen Anne furniture. They have stocking feet and beautiful shells. Some of these chairs have shells on the knees as well, and often in the six digit price category. The seats have been reupholstered in a fine Vermont wool.
