Item Details
Description
George Nakashima (1905-1990) Set of Four "Conoid" Chairs with Single-Board Seats, New Hope, Pennsylvania, 1988 American black walnut, hickoryEach signed and dated: "George Nakashima Jan. 9 1988"Each signed with client's name and studio notation: "1 piece seat"H: 35, W: 19, D: 20 in. PROVENANCE: Acquired directly from the artistThence by descent to Private Collection, Baltimore
Condition
Fine vintage condition. Original finish with only very minor signs of age or use, including small, minor impressions to edges and some accumulations of dirt to crest rails from age and handling. Joints are tight with no breaks or repairs. Back of one seat with drying split along the grain, in the making, and filled at the studio, stable and resulting from the highly figured seat. All seats present with extraordinary grading and highly attractive color. One chair spindle is cherry, not hickory, and appears darker than surrounding hickory spindles, however this spindle does not appear to be a replacement, and we believe this is an anomaly that occurred when the set was made.
