Set of Five Painted Windsor Side Chairs, attributed to Abraham Shove, Bristol County, Massachusetts, c. 1800-10, with seven spindles, shaped seats, and bamboo-turned swelled splayed legs joined by stretchers, early surface of green paint overall and brown-painted seats, ht. 36 3/4, seat ht. 18 in.
Provenance: G.W. Samaha; Pamela Boynton.
The chairs are all very stable. The backs wiggle slightly but are also quite solid. Chairs all have paint loss, especially to seats, and to varying degrees.
