These are some old work that I have been keeping around the shop as models. Back when I made chairs as well as case pieces & tables, I had a few clients who would request these in pairs, usually with one of each chair paired with a small tavern table. (I even once took a commission for a child’s slant-front Chippendale desk with claw-and-ball feet, which I might post at a later date.)
They are both cherry, and they measure about 30 inches high at the crest rail and 12” high at the seat, a scale that makes them useful for children between the ages of two and seven years. Every joint is exactly like that of a full-sized chair, with compound angled tenons for the Chippendale. The splad on the Queen Anne is curved, just like a full-sized chair.
