A Shaker #1 Armchair

The second smallest production chair offered by the Mount Lebanon, New York Shakers. This example is a very early variant with thin graceful arms which are set off by large turned mushroom handholds. Maple and pine with a later (but probably 19th C.), black painted surface. The woven tape seat is a replacement. Circa 1880.
