Description:
One of a pair of Chippendale carved mahogany side chairs, the design based on plate 9 of Robert Mainwaring's The Cabinet and Chairmaker's Real Friend and Companion, published in London in 1765. Winterthur has a chair of this pattern signed on the seat frame: "Bottum'd June 1773 by WVE Salem." The chair has a shaped crest with incised edge above a pierced volute-carved vase-form splat and upholstered seat, on acanthus-carved and punchwork decorated legs ending in claw-and-ball feet. These came from a set of chairs from the Flynts' Greenwich house. Attributed to the shop of Nathaniel Gould (1734-1781), and features his "type B" acanthus-leaf carved knee.
