2010 Northern Woods Competition - Best Handwork Award Winner
The original c. 1760 chair is referred to as the "best American Queen Anne Chair" in Horner's Blue Book of Philadelphia Furniture. There are four known copies from a set of at least 6 originals in existance. It is defined by smooth flowing curves from the crestrail and back legs which frame incredible carving in the pierced splat. This ornamentation continues through the knee carving with its dominant central cabochon and graceful ball and claw feet. Primary wood is mahogany.
