Object Description

Web - 08/13/2012

One of a set of 12 Chinese Chippendale-style garden chairs, circa 1930, iron and steel frames with a brass link seat. The blue color is based on paint analysis done in 2011 by conservator Susan Buck. The chairs are close but not identical to chairs produced by Pompeian Studios of New York. This chair is currently not on view and is still the 1980's black.
