Pair of side chairs


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 723

The design for this oval-back chair was based on an engraving in George Hepplewhite’s "Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Guide" (1788). Other chairs thought to be from this set of twenty-four also have an oval back but are painted white instead of blackish brown.
