# 5311. A pair (2) of Rococo/Gothic parlor chairs. Circa 1845-65. Black Walnut. H.37" tall. W.16". D.15". Attributed to Klauder & Deginter, Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Two nearly identical examples where exhibited The Philadelphia Antiques Show 2005 Loan Exhibit "Vaulting Ambition" Gothic Revival in Philadelphia 1830-60. There is also a nearly identical example at the Metropolitan Museum of art American wings decorative arts visual library. A similar pair of chairs is pictured on page 27 (No.43) of The Gothic Revival Style in America. 1830-1870. written by Katherine S. Howe and David B. Warren for an exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston in 1976. Described in the catalogue: "Rococo Revival forms blend with and in some cases overwhelmed Gothic ornament as evinced in this side chair, one of four that were once in the same parlor. Heavy cabriole legs, a serpentine seat, and foliated back are obvious Rococo elements in the chair, while the vestigial crockets and mildly arched back with arches and trefoil drops above the seat recall the Gothic. Here is a chair that clearly combines elements from the two revivals." Our pair display slight variations of the chair in the exhibit, but undoubtedly came from the same workshop. From a Philadelphia home. Condition: original seat, foundation; split (as shown in the detailed images) in the center of the carved back of one of the chairs. Sturdy and the needlepoint is in excellent condition. Price: $1,950. the pair.
