      Est: $1,000 - $2,000

      A PAIR OF AMERICAN ROCOCO REVIVAL ROSEWOOD PARLOR CHAIRS, MANNER OF jOHN HENRY BELTER (1804-1863), NEW YORK CITY (1850-1860), each with an arched crestrail of blossoming fruit details above a scrolling shaped rectangular back rest enclosing a conforming upholstered panel, on a similarly upholstered seat and serpentine seat rail centering a floral pendant, raised on short front cabriole legs with flower carved hips ending in scrolling foliate feet. NOTE: John Henry Belter was well known for his successful production of furniture in the fashionable Rococo Revival style of the 1840's and 1850's. This success was based on his use of both traditional methods of production as well as his innovative use of lamination. The lamination process required the "gluing wood veneers together and pressing them into shape in a caul" (Schwartz, The Furniture of John Henry Belter and the Rococo Revival, New York, 1981, page 30). The new methods allowed Belter and others to make some of the more exuberant curves so prevalent in this style. In addition, this process allowed for the continued use of rosewood, a very popular wood and in demand by the purchasing clients, but also brittle, especially so in veneer form.

Demonstrating beautifully restrained carving similar to that on the well-known bed from the Manney collection, the ornament on this bedstead enhances rather than overwhelms its distinctive sculptural aspect. The massive serpentine form of the bed, constructed of more than sixteen laminated layers, not only is a technical marvel, but also boasts three practical virtues cited by Belter in his patent application of 1856: was ease of installation, as the four panels can be assembled without tools; hygienic; and economy of space, by avoiding the use of posts which Belter declared...
