Description

 

FRESH FROM AN OLD COLLECTION.

AN EXTREMELY RARE 18TH CENTURY MASSACHUSETTS WINDSOR "BOW-BACK" SIDE CHAIR WITH 9 PIPE-STEM TURNED SPINDLES, TWO FINELY TURNED STEM BENT SUPPORTS, A HAND HEWN SADDLE SEAT WITH SPLAYED BAMBOO TURNED LEGS IN A GREAT EARLY 19TH CENTURY GRUNGY BLACK PAINT OVER THE ORIGINAL RED.
UNSIGNED, BUT PROBABLY MADE BY THE CHAIR MAKER "S.J. TUCKE" WHO IS LISTED AS A CABINETMAKER AND CHAIR MAKER IN BOSTON, MA FROM 1790-1796.

Boston, MA, Circa 1790-1796.

Great early example of a very fine Boston, MA Windsor. It has a wonderful shaped hand hewn pine seat and very nice turned "bamboo" legs and stretchers with the very pronounced and distinctive feet found on the other documented examples of Tucke's chairs.

For more information on S.J Tucke, (Samuel J. Tucke), see, "The Antique Windsor Chair" by Evans. Also, "Windsor Style", by Charles Santore.

GREAT SPLAY TO THE LEGS. AND THE FEET ARE ALL ORIGINAL AND FULL HEIGHT.

The bow is fully intact with no breaks. The spindles are original. The legs are tight and the feet are full height and all original.

The surface is an early 19th century GRUNGY black paint. You can still see traces of the original red Paint underneath.

The chair is very stable and was being used on a daily basis.
The only loss is an old age or shrinkage split in the seat

For a similar example see, "The Windsor Style in America", by Charles Santore.

Typical wear associated with the age of the item.

IT HAS NOT BEEN ENDED OUT AND ALL THE FEET ARE ORIGINAL.

This great chair stands 36 1/2" tall. The seat height is a full 17 1/2" tall.

Typical wear associated with the age of the item.
