The Nantucket Windsor chair form evolved from familiar Philadelphia Windsor chair designs. Chairs made by two Nantucket chairmakers in particular, Frederick Slade (1777-1800) and Charles Chase (1731-1815), have come to be seen as the most impressive and representative specimens of the type. The high fan-back armchair with the label "made by Frederick Slade" in the N.H.A. collections was described by leading Windsor chair scholar Nancy Goyne Evans as an outstanding example of the form with "bold character." Reproduced by Warren Chair Works, exclusively for the N.H.A. this chair is an exact reproduction of Frederick Slade's 1799 chair. Pictured here in it's presumed green on black original finish, this chair can be ordered in any Warren Chair Works finish. Visit www.warrenchairworks.com for complete list of finishes.
