An exceptional carved walnut Chippendale armchair, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, circa 1770.

 This finely carved armchair is constructed of high quality walnut that retains a rich color and bright patina. The chair has an expertly carved serpentine crest rail with rolled ears, centering a raised Rococo shell. The rail joins a scrolled and pierced splat in a typical Philadelphia form with paired strap-work braces that terminate in matched volutes. The back is supported with tapered and fluted side stiles that join the seat rail and continue into rounded rear legs with a gentle backward rake. The elegantly serpentine-shaped armrests have scrolled hand holds and are supported by shaped and molded supports. The arms and supports create a pleasing form, which is both graceful and robust. The rectangular seat frame, which has a molded edge and slip seat, has exposed, rear, through tenons. The seat frame is original and is constructed of poplar. The front rail has an inverted carved shell overhanging the center of the apron. The front cabriole legs have shaped returns and fluted shell-carved knees. The legs terminate in drake or trifid feet which are a definitive Philadelphia form.

Dimensions: Height: 40”; Width at arms 28”; Width at seat 25”; Depth 19”; Seat height 18”
