  MID-19TH CENTURY, PLANK SEAT, PAINT-DECORATED SETTEE IN APPLE GREEN WITH BELL FLOWERS, GRAPES & FLORA, 1845-1865
Dimensions (inches): $9,500
Description:
Paint-decorated, Pennsylvania, plank-seat settee of the mid-19th century (1845-65), in the half-spindle-back style with an angel wing crest rail. The background is apple green with black and green striping and gold gilding on the bulbous turnings. The theorem-like registers on the crest rails are typical of rural Pennsylvania chairs and benches. There is a cluster of grapes in the center, flanked by a large bell flower, other fruit, various flora and fauna. More leaves decorate the center of each mid rail. The overall result is a pleasing example of Pennsylvania German folk art on a piece of rural-made, paint- decorated furniture.

Condition: Some expected wear. Excellent, original surface.
