• Corner chair, ca. 1750
    This corner chair has Queen Anne style splats, crossed stretchers, a front cabriole leg with a carved knee, three turned legs and pad feet. The deep apron conceals the fact that the chair is a commode. Corner chairs, also called roundabout chairs, were often used at desks during the eighteenth century. The form was not often made after the Chippendale period.
    Donated to Montpelier by William C. Boardman
