The name of Boston cabinetmaker, Joshua Holden, is branded on the underside of the original chair purchased by H.F. du Pont for the Winterthur Museum. Fashioned in the early 1800s, the chair was painted and gilded with acanthus leaves and stylized rosettes reflecting the 19th century interest in the ancient Greco Roman design. Kindel's reproduction captures the "Klismos" form and the delicate ornament of the original chair made by Holden. The chair is made of Mahogany and the seat is caned. A loose, knife-edge cushion is available for an extra charge. Standard adornment includes gold striping, rosettes and acanthus leaves on the back splat. Hand painted feathers and scrolls are optional.
Optional COM required: 2 yards plain fabric (2 chairs).
