Four Handmade Early 19th Century Hitchcock Chairs

Offering a set of four handmade Hitchcock chairs. Circa 1820-1840. They have a nice patina, with an old shellac finish present. The chairs recently received a coat of very fine museum quality English wax. All the joints are very stable and the chairs feel very solid. There are nice details of a skilled craftsman, with carving marks and nicely turned legs.

Most Hitchcock chairs are painted black, but these happened to be finished Yellow Pine & hardwood. Under one of the chairs, there is very faint painted lettering, showing to whom the chairs were made. I haven’t been able to make out the entire name. The chairs came from a farmhouse in Western Massachusetts and were likely made locally, with some parts potentially from the Hitchcock Co.  In 1818, the Hitchcock company started in the business of selling chair parts.
