~~1800's Pennsylvania Paint Decorated Plank Seat Child's Chair~~
This dimunitive chair is as right as rain! The age of the original paint is appropriately worn, as to be expected, and there is good patina.
This piece is complete with no repairs, breaks or restoration. The legs are mortised through the rockers (as shown).
It is 19 inches tall (back) x 9 3/4 inches wide x 9 1/2 inches deep. The seat is 9 3/4 inches from the floor, so this little chair was intended for a small child. The back rest measures 11 inches wide and the rockers are 16 inches long.
Very substantial and in excellent condition with good color...Very well made!
Although this chair originated in the Oley Pennsylvania area, I originally found it at a high end New England show. It has been in my private collection for at least 20 years.
What a phenomenal find!
