Antique Potthast Chippendale Chair
Antique Potthast Chippendale chair in mahogany. This beautiful early 1910’s chair has a beautiful Chinese ladderback style and upholstered seat. There are dainty carved flowers and scroll designs on each rung and on the arms. Lovely design by this Baltimore maker.
Potthast Furniture was started by four German brothers after they immigrated to the United States in the late 1800’s. Known for their beautiful hand-made reproductions, the Potthast slogan was “The Antiques of Tomorrow.” Certainly, we can see their incredible attention to detail and great craftsmanship.
We left the chair frame in original finish. Of course, there are a few signs of age to the chair. Also, there is one repair on the arm (please see photos.)
We did reupholster the seat in a lovely gold and light blue fabric.
