The frame of this stripped chair reveals the significant role of the upholsterer in shaping the chair's final design.

Provenance

While no history exists for this chair, it was presented together with three side chairs, which are similar structurally in all points and appear to have been made as a set. Part of the bequest of Dr. Samuel A. Green in 1919.
