New England William and Mary bannister back tiger maple armchair with arched crest transitioning to four (4) flat vertical baluster shaped slats and bottom shaped rail, ring, and cylinder turned stiles with rear stiles having prominent button shaped finials. Curved arm rests terminating in scroll shaped handholds. Front stretchers with double ball turnings, front stiles tapering at feet. Older splint oak woven seat. 48 1/2" H x 25 1/2" W x 17 1/4" D. First half of the 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 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: Overall very good condition with older refinish, glued break to bottom shaped rail of backrest, losses to splint oak at front corners of chair, especially the left side.
