Neoclassical Style Arm Chair

"Until very recently people were literally scared out of their wits by color.  Perhaps this was a hangover from our Puritan ancestors.  But whatever the reason, brown, grays and neutrals were the only shades considered 'safe'.  Now we know that lovely, clear colors have a vital effect on our mental happiness."  - Dorothy Draper; 'Decorating is Fun' 1939.  This lovely Neoclassical style arm chair is sure to have a positive effect on your mental happiness!  The carved wood frame has an antiqued ivory finish with green painted accents and a caned back.  The feather filled seat cushion is upholstered in a charmingly cheerful pink gingham fabric.  There is no makers label, but the quality is top notch.  34" h., 24" w., 24" d.  American, c. late 20th c.  $450.00
Condition:  Very good vintage condition with age appropriate wear.
