A rare and exceptional pair of carved tiger maple side chairs crafted by master cabinetmaker Donald Dunlap of Antrim, New Hampshire, in the tradition of the 18th century Dunlaps family of chair and cabinetmakers. This pair of side chairs are constructed with figured maple and feature carved accentuated taller and broader ears with a bolder spur on each side, a thicker pierce carved splat to reduce fracture, shell carved crest rail, upholstered slip seats, and reeded legs. Each slip seat is hand signed and dated by Donald Dunlap, 1990 & 1995.. Donald Dunlap is the last cabinetmaker in the six- generation family of Dunlaps who began making furniture in America in 1765. Please refer to Page 79 of "The Dunlap Cabinetmakers - A Tradition in Craftsmanship" by Philip Zea and Donald Dunlap, Stackpole Books, to see chairs pictured. These chairs were in the personal collection of Donald Dunlap.
