Antique PRIMITIVE PLANK BOTTOM CHAIR - Museum Quality - $175 (Escondido)


condition: excellent

This is a MUSEUM QUALITY example of a PRIMITIVE PLANK BOTTOM CHAIR. You can see similar ones in the Colonial Williamsburg, VA Museum, the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC or the Philadelphia Furniture Museum. This chair is executed with the same exactness as those in the museums. The form fit in the seat is excellent, the chair is strong (supports people 240 lbs. and greater), light weight. It measures approx. 33" tall and 15" wide at the seat, the seat is approx. 1 1/2" thick. They just knew how to make chairs back in the early to mid 1800's. This could have been a chair made by the Amish of Pennsylvania as that region is where this came from. I would ship it but the cost would be pretty high and I just don't trust shipping companies. This is of a fruitwood. I have used only Howard's "Feed-N-Wax" Wood Polish & Conditioner. It shows really well. Look at the photos! If you have any questions, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them. Thanks for looking!

By the way... the photos don't do justice. You have to see it!!!
