Sample text

Except for the crest shell's flatter arch, armchairs at Yale (Kane, no. 119), at the Wadsworth Atheneum (P. Johnston, p. 1020), and in a private collection (Kirk 1967, no . 238, converted from a side chair) appear identical to cat. no. 10. A set of chairs of the same general type but not the work of the same man was originally owned by Joseph Barnard (died 1785), who between 1768 and 1772 built the Old Manse in Deerfield, Massachusetts (Fales 1976, no. 98). Another set, with an interlaced-diamond motif in the splat, belonged to the Reverend John Marsh N ew England Chairs 47 of Wethersfield, Co nnecticut (Kirk 1967, no.

227. Bishop, figs. 60, 60a. Kirk 1972, fig. 184. Gift of Mrs. J. Insley Blair, 1946 6. Side Chair New England, 1740-90 OTHER CHA IRS from the set in which this one is number V are at the Wadsworth Atheneum (numbers I I and V I; slip seats numbered I II I and V [Kirk 1972, no. l) and at Deerfield (number II II; seat numbered V I [Fales 1976, fig. 79]). The latter chair was owned in the Williams family of Deerfield, presumably first by Dr. Thomas (1718-1775) and thereafter by his son Ephraim (1760-1835) and his grandson John (1817-1899), who was a president of Trinity College, Hartford.

A set of six chairs once owned by joseph Willard (1738-1804), pr esid ent of Harvard College from 1781 until his death, would be identical except for th e shape of the cu rve joining th e crest rail and splat (H arvard T erc entenary, no. 252, pI. 45; P-B sale no. 2080, J 120/62, lot 134). Another cha ir with flatter ears, rounded knees, and plain br ackets is otherwise similar (P-B sale no. 2080, lot 135; Sack 5, p. 1149). All these examples, ex ecuted in a distinctive angu lar style and with the lower part of their splats drawn JUD G ED BY IT S 48 SEATING AND SLEEPING FURNITURE from the same template, look to be the work of one hand.
