Bow Back Settee

This reproduction was inspired by an excellent example of eighteenth century Chester County, Pennsylvania craftsmanship. The bamboo style turnings date the original to circa 1824. The center portion of the bow back was painted to echo the finished mahogany arms. This gives the piece the appearance of being a continuous arm Windsor, a form that was created in the northeastern states. Although there is no historical precedent for this paint scheme, it is an idea that I developed through careful research on the style and period.
