William and Mary Early oak ladderback armchair with ring and ball turned stiles, arched ladderback slats, losenge front stretchers and lower arm supports, flat shaped arm rests, pronounced ring and ball finials, front feet with lower ring turnings resembling feet pads. Old varnish with traces of old red paint. 49 1/2" H x 24 3/4" W x 18 1/2" D. New England, early 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, Wilton, CT., Aug. 1, 1939. 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 assembled 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: Top arched slat with old loss, left arm rest may be a 19th century replacement. Rush seat is an old replacement.
