Gallery / Nantucket Fan Back Armchair

The Nantucket Fan Back Armchair is the biggest chair I make. It has a large roomy oval seat with a tail piece mortised in to accept the bracing spindles, a gently curved crest and gracefully sawn arms with carved knuckles. It sits nicely in any room in the house.

This chair was very popular form in Coastal Massachusetts around 1770 - 1790.
