Classical Armchairs

New York, New York
Circa 1830

This wonderful pair of Classical armchairs have shaped crest rails above upholstered backs with beautifully scrolling arms centering upholstered seats. Each is raised on gilt-lacquered brass casters. These chairs are covered in a fine Scalamandre striped fabric. An identical chair from the Natchez, Mississippi collection of previous Monmouth Plantation owner, Mrs. Hubert Barnum. is illustrated in the Otto publication.
