Chippendale Carved Mahogany Side Chair, carving attributed to Martin Jugiez, Philadelphia, circa 1770

Catalogue Note

A chair from the same set as the present chair is at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.  See Robert Bishop, The American Chair, (New York, 1972), p. 136, illus. 155.
A Philadelphia side table at Winterthur, also carved by Bernard and Jugiez, exhibits the distinctive knee carving seen on this chair: see Joseph Down's American Furniture: Queen Anne and Chippendale Periods in the Henry Francis DuPont Winterthur Museum, (New York, 1952), illus. 371.  The knee carving on this mahogany and marble side table related directly to the knee carving on the presently offered lots 2156 and 2157.
For related chairs see: Patricia E. Kane,  300 years of American Seating Furniture; Chairs and Beds from the Mabel Brady Garvan and Other Collections at Yale University, (Boston, 1976), illus. 104. John T. Kirk, American Chairs: Queen Anne and Chippendale, (New York, 1972), nos. 87, 91.
