This is a chippendale chair fashioned after a piece built by 18th century Portsmouth NH maker Robert Harrold. The original was mahogany, this piece is made of air dried walnut. It also employs a slip seat instead of the original over the rail upholstery.
It is upholstered in a traditional manner with heavy duty webbing, burlap, muslin, horse hair, cotton, and high quality fabric.
