American fan back windsor armchair, Mid Atlantic or New England. Curved crest rail with nine (9) back spindles intersected by a center rail terminating in flattened curved handholds. Arms supported by vase-turned balusters and short spindles. Wide oval shaped seat transitioning into ring and vase leg turnings and tapered turned feet. Legs having side and medial bulbous turned stretcher supports. Underside with traces of green paint and Davis inventory label (F-161). 35 1/2" H x 23 1/8" W x 17" D. Late 18th century. Provenance: The estate of Charles K. Davis, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, by descent from his father, Charles K. Davis of Fairfield, CT, purchased from E. B. Lagrange. Note: Charles Krum Davis Sr. (1889-1968) was chairman of the Remington Arms Company, and a passionate early collector of Americana. With the help of a few important dealers, primarily Israel Sack, Davis built what has been called one of the most important private collections of early Americana. His home was profiled in the Magazine Antiques, January and March, 1941. Much of Mr. Davis Sr.'s collection ultimately went to Winterthur and other museums. Condition: Overall very good condition with an older refinish. Traces of the original green paint to underside.
