Pair of Sage Green Country Chairs

Pair of sage green country chairs of Southeastern Pennsylvania, circa 1850. Backsplat resembles the wings of angels, a common motif found in “Pennsylvania Deutsch” folk art. The wings are painted in bold yellow with red drawing lines. Half spindles with thumbtack posts. Graceful and slender lines give the plank seats extra style and comfort. Chairs striped in the following colors: olive green, black and yellow. Several points of decorated lathe turnings on each chair. Excellent.


Blue Decorated Maine Chest

Along the river waterways of Maine in 1800, a town named Farmington Falls attracted all types of industries that required cheap water power and access to abundance of soft woods including pine, spruce and poplar. It is here that this exceptional chest was fashioned. Gorgeous shades of blue: intense, dark blue over light, swirls made by sponge, cloth and combs dance across the top and sides, framed by architectural combed “columns” at each corner. Size: 43 ½” W, 19” Deep, 18 ½” Tall. All pine, including till. Dovetailed construction, applied base molding, replaced hinges. C. 1810-1825: very fancy for its day!
