Solid Cherry. Mortise and tenon joinery (pined). Balloon slip-seat. Cabriole legs. Turned stretchers. Hand carved crest rail. Chair is a reproduction of a 1730s chair that is on display at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem MA. Another cool thing about the chair is if you look at the front view pic the shape of the splat makes the shape of 2 peacocks facing each other in the background.
