Pair of Chippendale Walnut Side Chairs
Philadelphia, circa 1760
The serpentine crestrail with molded voluted ears centering a rocaille carved cartouche, above a vase-form splat and a shell carved apron, raised on cabriole legs ending in ball and claw feet, each branded MRS. J. A. HASKELL on the interior of the rear seat rail.
Mrs. J. Amory Haskell (1864-1942) owned one of the largest and most distingushed collections of American furniture. Items from her collection can be found at the Metropolitan Musem of Art, the Brooklyn Museum and other museums. Parke Bernet sold The Americana Collection of the Late Mrs. J. Amory Haskell, over 25 days in an auction of over 7,000 lots. The chairs offered here may have been purchased in this sale.
