This is a bannister-back armchair, c. 1725, traceable to the "hearts and crown" armchairs of Stratford CT. It acquired its name form the shape of the crest rail. It is made of cottonwood and has a very early seat cover. Rockers were added in the 19th century. The poor repair to the crest rail fascia is not a structural break as can be seen from the rear photos. The style of the handgrips of the arms are traceable to the cabinet shop of Thomas Salmon, a noted Stratford maker who lived from 1693 to 1749. The chair has good color, and aside from the rail mishap and the rockers addition, is in very good condition for its age.
