Full Details for Lot 10

Sale 2003 Lot 10

Pair of Federal Hepplewhite Mahogany Armchairs

ca. 1800, New York, each with a shield back with a leaf-carved splat, joined to shaped arms, dished seat and outswept legs.
h. 39-1/2"

Estimate $1,000-1,500

**Both chairs are in very good polished and restored condition. All legs and backs are tight and secure. One arm exhibits a slight amount of movement at its joint with the stile.

Chair A:
There is a spot of filler on the back of a stile, presumably where a dowel or screw is attached to secure the seat rail.
The upholstery exhibits a light stain that may clean out.

Chair B:
There is a glued repair to the top rail, about 1-1/4" long. It appears to be the original wood, where a small break was reattached.
The back side of the stiles each exhibit evidence of an added dowel to secure the seat rail.
