Side Chair


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 718

These chairs, from an original set of twelve, along with a settee (39.184.2) and a card table (39.184.12), descended en suite in the Verplanck family. Queen Anne features—the heavy walnut frame, balloon-shaped seat, and absence of Rococo carving—suggest that the set was made for Samuel Verplanck shortly after his return from Holland in 1763 with his bride, Judith Crommelin.
