The No. 152 Chippendale Arm Chair & No. 151 Chippendale Side Chair

We bought two side chairs at Sotheby’s, N.Y., made them larger and invented a matching arm chair. This is the best looking chippendale chair of its type that we have seen. We have no idea who designed it, but it is English ca. 1760. Virtually all the joints are flush, the stretchers are well-placed and stippling is used in the carving on the crest rail. The backposts are wounded and bevelled to lighten their appearance. The back of the chair is just as graceful as the front. Grab the crest rail, it has a wonderful feel to it. The word chair comes from the Greek word “kathedra.” A cathedral is where the bishop keeps his chair.
