Sack catalogue description: Chippendale mahogany claw-and-ball foot side chair bearing the original label of Benjamin Randolph, at the Sign of the Golden Ball, Chestnut Street, Philadelphia; the splat is of strapwork formation, the crest with molded scroll ears, the knees with shell carving; mellow brown patina, made by Benjamin Randolph. Very few labeled pieces by Randolph are known, and thus this chair is an important document; other labeled chairs of the set are in the family and one is in the Winterthur Museum. ----- Bibliography: Book: American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, 10 vols. (Washington, D.C.: Highland House Publishers, 1957–1990), vol. 10, p. 2559, pl. P6252.
