The Early Queen Anne Chair
I found three early Queen Anne (ruled Great Britain 1702 - 1714) side chairs for Christian's dining room. They are made of walnut wood and the style of the back is different on all three; but they came together. The legs are straight as was not unusual in early country chairs at this time; around 1720.
They are lovely silhouetted up against a wall while not in use. The first is the "male" head of the table chair and the second is the "ladies" which is much lighter in design and goes at the foot...the third is simply a side chair I believe. The first two were $72.00 each and the last was $22.00 (it has a grain crack in the seat which won't be noticed with a chair cushion I'll make for all of them).
