Goddard Side Chair
with rectangular seat
mahogany, 39"h

Another version of the Goddard side chair is that with a rectangular seat and front legs that are accordingly square in section. This chair has notable Goddard ball and claw feet with carved knees and turned stretchers. The back has cabriole-shaped stiles and a bold Newport curved-ray shell on the crest rail.

Like all chairs, this example is of handmade pegged mortise-and-tenon construction throughout for many centuries of service. It is shown upholstered in fabric but is equally correct in leather.
