This ‘Great chair’ is a very rare variant of the beloved Connecticut ‘Heart & Crown’ chair.  Typically at the center of the stylized broken scroll crest is a pierced heart, whereas in this instance the chairmaker chose to feature three elliptical piercings. The details of the turning on the stiles, legs, and stretchers all relate directly to chairs made in Stratford, Connecticut as identified by Robert F. Trent in his seminal publication Hearts & Crowns: Folk Chairs of the Connecticut Coast, 1720-1840, (New Haven, CT: New Haven Colony Historical Society, 1977), pp. 44-54.
