This hand - made American primitive pioneer log cabin chair dates to the very early 1800's. Can't you just see the primitive log cabin for which this wonderful chair was originally made? As you perch on this pioneer treasure to gaze at a crackling fireplace or change your boots, stoke up your pipe and imagine a simpler life.
Found discarded from an Iowa farmhouse basement, this chair was covered in thick brown paint. It is constructed of elm and hard rock maple with original red milk paint. Features rough carved paddle back and thick slab seat.
Our pioneer heritage restorers left traces of the milk paint for historical reference and gave the chair new life with hand rubbed golden pecan / oak tung oil. A durable seal has been added so the chair, still very sturdy, can be used as well as admired. Measures 31.5" x 15" x 19".
This chair makes an outstanding one - of - a - kind affordably collectable piece for any rustic or Western decor. It would also make a wonderful contribution to your local historical museum. Given the types of wood used and the milk paint original finish, it probably traveled from origins in Pennsylvania or Ohio along rivers used by pioneers as they migrated west past the Mississippi River. This chair stopped at the lush prairie lands of Iowa, the "land between two rivers."
