Connecticut Chapin Arm Chair
cherry, 41"h

The arm chair version of the previous Chapin side chair, made of slightly more ample proportions and with the inclusion of handsome arms. The arm supports attach well forward on the seat rails, and sweep up and back to support the arms. The supports blend into the serpentine arms, which terminate in tight carved volutes.

Otherwise, the chair is identical to the previous side chair, with Chapin-school ball and claw feet, carved scallop shell crest, and carved volutes on the crest ears and pierced splat.
