Antique Slave Chair Primitive Handmade 1872 Family Heirloom African Americana For Sale

Antique Slave Chair Primitive Handmade 1872 Family Heirloom African Americana

This is a wonderful antique primitive slave chair.

Original owner was Sister Irene Johnson. Her father made the chair in 1872. Since he made this chair it has been in the same African American family. There are bits of paint here and there including green, yellow, red,brown and a bright blue that is peeling off.

The chair is 24" tall and the round seat is 14" in diameter. There are bent wood pieces secured with nails, old heavy ugly screws and the original old nails.

I acquired this chair from an antique shop in the south, Do not remember the state since its been 20 years at least. The gentleman told me it belonged to a sister Irene Johnson and had been in their family for a lifetime. He said her father a slave, made the chair from a chair his ownergave him. Aparently it was common for nannys,chamber maids and nursemaids to have alow chair to sit at the bedside ofslave owners.

It is very old and used a lot. It has a wonderful primitive look, just as it is and thats how we have used it.

There issome writing on the base of the chair sayingshedied in 1981 and was 109 years old.I cannot authenticate this with documents. It is word of mouth only.

The chair looks to be a childs chair, but he told me slaves often shortened adults chairs, fixed the broken wood and used them.

I have really enjoyed this old primitive chair over the years. I am downsizing and need to give it up. Please ask any questions you may have.

The chair weighs 6 lbs. and will need a large box. I will pay a portion of the shipping, so please wait for my invoice. If you would like to ask what the cost will be with the discount before offerding please just email or ask via the ask a question at the end of the listing.

Thanks and have a great day. I personally guarantee 100% satisfaction or full refund of all payment...after return. Please call or email.
