This is a wonderful matched pair of mid-18th Century, Eastern Pennsylvania, Ladder Back Chairs. These chairs display wonderful turned decoration on the front legs, which also terminate into nicely turned “bunn” feet. The feet on both chairs are all original, which is a rare feature for chairs of this age. The rear uprights also exhibit well-turned finials, and a four slat design. The most outstanding and pleasing feature on both chairs is the bold ball and ring turning on the front stretchers. While displaying appropriate wear for chairs of this age, these wonderful stretchers contain a great amount of detail. These chairs have “The Look” that is so highly desirable, as they still retain an old Spanish brown surface with a worn appearance. Both seats have been re-rushed in order to provide immediate use. With a 16 inch seat height, they are perfect dining chairs for an early setting. The condition on both chairs is excellent, with the exception of one repaired crack in one of the back splats.
