The Washington Collection: Side Chairs

A set of six walnut side chairs with Atlantic white cedar and pine secondary woods have a flaring back with a serpentine crest rail and solid vase-form splat supported by two front cabriole legs with trifid feet. These side chairs are part of the collection at Tudor Place and purportedly belonged to George Washington while he lived in Philadelphia. Tudor Place was the Washington, D.C., home of Thomas and Martha Custis Peter. Martha Custis Peter was First Lady Martha Washington's granddaughter.
