An antique child's chair, so beautifully made, so early and so well-loved, I think of it as a piece of American Folk Art.  Good wood with turnings that place its origin to Pennsylvania, or maybe New England.  Good splint seat in the best chrome yellow, faded on the top where the seat was exposed to light, strong and rich on the seat bottom where the paint was protected.  The arms and the rungs are worn thin-ish with proper age and wear patterns.  Right in every way: it's where little arms and little feet would have rested.  A marvelous chair.  We love it to bits.  Not only in good condition "for its age", it is in great condition for a child's chair of any age. Sturdy, without a wiggle, you can trust your toddler in it as well as your doll, your teddy or your rambunctious terrier.  Dimensions are a broad 16 1/4" wide,  22" high and 15" deep.  Super-duper piece of antique Americana!
