Pennsylvania comb-back Windsor armchair, possibly Philadelphia. Curved crest rail having carved scrolls at the terminus 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 shield shaped seat transitioning into ring and vase turned legs ending in turnip shaped feet. Bulbous stretcher supports for legs with a medial bulbous stretcher support. 47" total H x 17 1/2" Seat H x 24 1/2" W x 17" D. Late 18th century. Retains an old inventory label (F-159). Provenance: The estate of Charles K. Davis, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, by descent from his father, Charles K. Davis of Fairfield, CT, purchased from Israel Sack Inc., New York. 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 older refinished surface. Minimal traces of the original painted surface.
