There is a medallion missing from the center of the seat and also missing are the arm supports for each side. Incised designs are of northern origin and are related to these found in leatherworking.
large, rather European looking 4 legged chair. The seat is wide and rectangular. The frame is covered with incising which mostly consists of crosshatching or "Saturn" marks. The backrest is rather elaboratly carved, having 10 vertical rungs and 12 carved knobs at the top. The backrest itself is supported by both a continuation of the back legs and 2 curved and incised supports which are placed behind the legs. Each arm ends in a modified scroll. Although the chair was catalouged by P Ben-Amos, it appears that the attribution is from Sven Holsoe of the U of Delaware.
