Hello, August17th2011

I just purchased this shapely American Sheraton wing chair, circa 1810. The mahogany front legs are well turned, the wings have a strong serpentine outline, and the arms are horizontally scrolled, and the frame is in sound condition. In useable older flame stitch cover. Height of 46″, Width (at the widest point) 30″.

A second American Sheraton period win chair offered is also pictured in the attached images. This chair dates about 1810-20 and is in a blue cotton damask. The wings have compound curves from both views and create a very deep and cozy chair. The mahogany legs are fully reeded. Height 45 1/2″, Width 34″

The oil on canvas barn from a local collection scene has appealing detail with barns and a lily pad pond beneath a blue summer sky with scattering clouds. The artist is A. H. Binder who painted and exhibited in Boston in the late 19th century. 29″ X 34″ overall.

May I answer further questions or provide more detailed images?

Thanks and regards,

-Bob
