A Classical Armchair
Attributed to Isaac Vose
This rare American Classical armchair was made in one of the premier cabinet shops in Boston. The crest rail is formed by a rectangular tablet with reeded moldings surrounding a crotch mahogany veneer. The back splat consists of a pair of shallow carvings on either side of a veneered tablet. Expressive scrolled arms are finished with fine moldings and a Scalamandre linen and wool harateen covers the seat frame.
