Group of Three Federal Mahogany Side Chairs

ca. 1800, comprised of a square-back chair with a beaded splat with three crossed uprights, h. 35-1/4", a square- and elliptical-back chair with a tablet depicting swags on a star-punched ground, in the Salem manner, h. 37-3/4", and a square-back chair with elliptical corners and a contrasting light wood figured panel, h. 36-3/4".

Literature: The first example is similar to a chair illustrated in Montgomery, American Furniture of the Federal Period, pl. 27, and the third example is similar to a chair illustrated in the same book, pl. 25.

All three are in good sturdy condition. The light finished one has a small sratch to the top right shoulder. Refinished at one time.
The one with the carved rosettes to the crest rail has a small ding to the top left shoulder, and a long chip to the left back post where the seat meets this post. This one has an old refinished surface.
The chair with the carved swags is tight and fine. Good patina. Probably an old refinish as well.
