Pair of Walnut Chippendale Side Chairs
These side chairs are excellent examples of Philadelphia craftsmanship. At the center of each chair is a cupids bow crest with a finely carved cabachon over a pierced splat intersecting with a trapazoidal seat with a carved shell at the center. Both chairs have nicely shaped cabriole legs that terminate to claw-and-ball feet. The carving on the cabachon, shells and feet are all very fine.
