Two stenciled Hitchcock chairs with cane seating. In excellent condition.
$180.00 for the pair.
Most Hitchcock or "fancy chairs" were painted black or dark green and were decorated by a process using stencils and rubbing a bronzing powder into a tacky finish coat. The result was a lustrous design that came to signify Hitchcock’s work. Pin striping was done with paint, though never in gold. Striping was of yellow ocher. Gold was reserved for the banding, which went only half way around the turns in the legs. The chairs have rush or cane seats and sometimes an identifying stencil located on the back edge of the seat.
