An American Federal Hitchcock Cane Seated Chair C. 1826-1843

A black painted and yellow ochre stenciled, cane seated “Hitchcock” style Federal period chair. Paint appears to be original, as much wear has occurred over the years. The seat has been re-caned and is in wonderful shape.

• The turned and reeded top crest rail has the distinctive Hitchcock pillow or bolster shape in the center.

• The wide, curving center slat of the back has a plain yellow ochre rectangular stencil on the front, it has been grain-painted on the rear. The front of the slat is slightly clouded.

• The back is flaired; the stiles descending straightly from the flair to form the rear legs.

• The rounded stiles are flattened on the front.

• The legs and front stretcher are turned and reeded. The front legs are wonderfully bulbous.

• The legs terminate in button feet.

• The crest rail height is 34 1/4” from the floor.
• The seat sits 18” from the floor.
• The seat is 17 1/8” wide at the front, narrowing to 14 1/4” wide at the rear.
• The seat depth is 14 ½”.
• The crest rail width at the top is 16 ½”.

• There is a vintage screw repair to the right rear facing crest rail joint.

This chair is in as found condition. The surface patina is nicked, worn and flaked, as expected in a chair approaching 180 years of age. There are a few faint splotches of white paint here and there. The chair is in reasonably sturdy shape for this delicate style of chair.
