A very fine Renaissance Revival Victorian chair in the manner ascribed to John Jelliff. This is not---not a John Jelliff chair. It is well documented that Mr. Jelliff retired in 1860 and his shop turned over to his boyhood friend Henry Miller. Much of the Renaissance Revival furniture attributed to Jelliff was obviously produced after his retirement. Items marked Jelliff that includes "Co." in the name were produced when Miller operated the business. Miller operated the shop until 1890.
So we have a fine chair that is not Jelliff but is nevertheless fine.
chair is in good condition with no apologies. Priced as shown.
