An important antique Queen Anne mahogany wing chair, Newport, Rhode Island, circa 1760.
This antique Queen Anne wing chair exhibits appealing proportions together with boldly shaped cabriole legs, to create a handsome overall form. The arched crest joins shaped wings which flow into rolled arms with canted bases. The trapezoidal seat rest upon beautifully executed cabriole legs with broad pad feet. The flared and chamfered rectangular rear feet are joined by a turned stretcher and to the front legs by an "H" form blocked and turned stretcher. Secondary woods are walnut and maple. For a very similar example see "American Furniture a the Metropolitan Museum", M. Heckshire, jacket photo & Plate 72.
