John Townsend Easy Chair
mahogany, poplar & maple frame, 42"h

A Newport easy chair after the original by John Townsend. The chair has his signature ball and claw feet, with sharp knuckles and prominent talons. The base has turned side, medial, and rear stretchers. The frame is handsomely proportioned with vertical arm rolls and an arched crest.

The construction is by mortise and tenon throughout, and includes upholsterer's rails. The bare frame is shown in the thumbnail image below.
