Sack catalogue description: Pair of Hepplewhite mahogany shield-back side chairs, the backs carved with a beaded pointed arch and acorn, a sheaf of wheat and bellflower pendants; tapered molded legs, mellow light brown patina. Attributed to Stephen Badlam, based on the distinct relationship of the carved back to a chair signed by Badlam, illustrated in Sack, Fine Points of Furniture: Early American, p. 53. This pair of chairs belonged originally to the Hall family of Medford, Massachusetts, relatives of Lucy Hall Bradlee; they were purchased by us from a Bradlee descendant.
