Both will be offered for sale at the MV Big Flea on Saturday, April 24. That is, unless someone doesn’t snatch them up at our final donation/sales event this Saturday, April 17, at 1219 First Street in Alexandria!
The first is a mission-style armchair from the 1920s (left) in the style of Gustav Stickley. The chair includes its original finish and its original wood and cane seat. The remnants of a label on the lower leg indicate that it was made by the Hubbard and Eldredge company of Rochester, New York.
The second chair comes from the Sabbathday Shaker center near New Gloucester, Maine (right). Hand manufactured in the 19th century, this Shaker-style rocking chair was a very popular style. It retains its original finish and the cane seating is in remarkably good condition.
If you are interested in either chair, please contact Joe LaMountain at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us on Saturday between 2-4pm. Or better yet, come to The Fleaview on Friday, April 23 from 7-8pm to get a sneak peek at the other items we have for sale!
