1910s Mission Oak Baseball Chair - Nicest We Have Seen

1910s Mission Oak Baseball Chair - Nicest We Have Seen

More than a century old, this early Mission oak chair from the Stickley era is a home run wherever it may wind up. The seat back depicts baseball scenes carved in the wood. The original paint has been retained whereas almost all the similar pieces we have seen do not. As an added attraction, the original cushion is also included. The only TRUE Baseball furniture you will come across, as the scene portrays a pitcher dealing to a batter with a catcher and umpire situated behind the plate. Players are hand painted in beautifully bold white, red, and beige paint. There is one defensive player on the right side of the field, with a border fence surrounding the players and comprising the left side of the park. Beyond the fence is a tree and an actual bull in a pasture (the first "bullpen" perhaps?), which adds a very nice touch to the pastoral, summertime feel. This is an incredibly rare version with much of the original still present and vibrant. Simply the nicest one we have seen. The chair measures approximately 39x26x23" and retains its original, but reupholstered cushion. Otherwise, it is in EX-MT condition. Mission was simple furniture built to last... and last it has!
