Hi Craig and All! I really need some help with what I think is an Antique East Coast Windsor chair. I'm not certain of course, but so far this is what I "think" we have here:

It is either a "Comb back" or a "Brace Back" Arm chair. The style may be one of the following: New England, Nantucket, Connecticut, or Boston? I do not think it's English.

There are no nails in its construction - wood plugs only. It's in pretty good shape, with just a bit of damage on the back right leg area, and most of what looks like original black paint is worn off.

I also can't determine if this is a 19th century item ( Victorian - 1860 - 1900) Or, if I'm Very lucky, perhaps an 18th century chair?

I'm including pictures below. Thank you so much for any help you can offer me. :)

Small scrolled arms. Another below is not as clear ( sry).

Seat - a couple views. Appears to be scooped out in the center.

Side view, showing the serpentine shape of the arms as well.

I am talking the ones who do the shabby chic the worn paint with all the glazes takes time

Comment by House of Charm Antiques Southinc on September 8, 2014 at 9:41am

Then she's using the wrong paint. Chalk Paint is one step, wipe the piece off(or even leave it  dusty) and just slap on 2 coats. Dries in 20-30 minutes between coats. That piece done in shabby would take 3-4 hours. Latex job, 7 days... we've done maybe 500-600 pieces in latex in the bad old days and about 300 in Chalk Paint. I sound like an infomercial but it is revolutionary paint.

lillian it is a lot of work to paint the pc correctly so time is money so she charges for her labor, the cheaper she can get it the more money she makes  just like any other business.

A couple of our pieces.

Comment by House of Charm Antiques Southinc on September 7, 2014 at 11:25am

most of the pieces we're selling are painted by us. We were some of the 1st ones to import French painted furniture in the 70s, strip it to wood and then started bleaching in the 80s which was the craze. Then the original painted pieces started selling as original so we began painting wood furniture and we couldn't paint fast enough. this was the early 80s and 30 years later, the whole planet is painting everything. I have pair of painted leather deck shoes and Lorna just painted a pair of brass candlesticks. Annie Sloan of course, has been painting for 35 years. Hers is the only paint to use to shamelessly plug it.

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on September 7, 2014 at 11:20am

You guys are very perceptive! That's exactly what she wanted to for - to paint and re-sell. Imagine slapping paint on that beautiful wood finish!!! Since she is local, I found her page in Pinterest and saw some of her work. She says she gets these dressers for practically nothing; some people even give them to her (that's probably why she didn't want to pay $300). Although if people give her furniture why she expects that same from me - two entirely different situations.

That's the term I was hunting for!

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on September 6, 2014 at 12:07pm

I looked at some I found on the internet that looked close to what I have and they were termed "Federal".
