Not on view

The klismos, with splayed legs and round back, was an antique form resuscitated in the archaeological enthusiasm of the late eighteenth century. The signature "C. Dixwell 1820" beneath the seat rail of the side chair (see 67.63.1) is that of Charles Dixwell, a London "upholder," a profession including the tasks of upholsterer, furniture repairman, and undertaker.
