EXTREMELY RARE MATCHING PAIR OF PENNSYLVANIA, PAINT-DECORATED SETTEES IN OLIVE GREEN, 1840-70:

One of a very rare matching pair of Pennsylvania, paint-decorated settees with half-spindle-back form and unusually narrow seats, not unlike those more common to New England examples. The base color is olive green and there are rich, yellow overtones from the old varnish. The stenciled and hand-embellished decoration, executed in gilt and paint, appears in gold, green, copper, blue and black on the three registers of the crest and the center rails. The surface is excellent, original, and untouched.

Condition: Exhibits only mild, expected wear. Excellent overall.
