Side Chair


Not on view

Typical New York features, such as the carved tassel-and-ruffle design in the splat, the gadrooned seat rail, and the square claw-and-ball feet, are dis­played in this chair. It is thought to have descended in the great landholding Van Rensselaer family of Albany, New York.
