Herter Brothers was the preeminent New York City cabinetmaking firm from the 1860s through the 1880s. Notable clients included the White House, William H. Vanderbilt, Jay Gould, and J. Pierpont Morgan. This chair may have been made for the LeGrand Lockwood mansion in Norwalk, Connecticut, built and decorated between 1867 and 1869. The marquetry plaque in the carved crest, depicting horns and pipes, alludes to the chair’s intended use in the music room.
