This is a chair which has sold so well over the years that it has become known at our shop as the "Standard Chippendale Chair". Carved crest rail, foliate carved backsplat, and legs featuring acanthus carvings as well as Chippendale inspired ball and claw feet. No wonder why this chair has always been a favorite.
Chippendale <div>CHIPPENDALE STYLE</div><div>Thomas Chippendale (1718 1779), the famous English furniture maker, was born in Yorkshire around 1718 and secured his place in furniture history by publishing his theories on furniture design and manufacture, entitled The Gentleman and Cabinet-Makers Director, in three editions in 1754, 1755 and 1762. This revolutionary text, which included over 200 drawings, spread throughout England and the United States and has highly influenced furniture production ever since.</div><div>The trademarks of the Chippendale style are the ribbon/ribband back and the ball and claw foot. Chippendale took the solid wood vase- or fiddle-shaped splat (horizontal bar) of the Queen Anne chair back and pierced the wood with a spiraling ribbon motif. The resulting splat is known as a ribbon or ribband (both terms are equally used) chair back. The Chippendale style is synonymous with the Chinese motif of the ball and claw foot. English society had become enamored with Chinese style since England started trading in the Canton region of China in 1635. Tea, silk, and blue and white porcelain were enormously popular. The ball and claw foot design, popularly found on Chinese furniture, is drawn from Chinese mythology, symbolizing a dragons paw holding the pearl of wisdom.</div>
