United States
circa 1966


Elegant, rakish and well-crafted armchair by California designer Paul Tuttle. Fabricated in small numbers by Stanley Reifel of Carpenteria, CA, circa 1966. This example was part of a set made for Mrs. Esther Bear and was illustrated in solo exhibitions on Tuttle at the Pasadena Museum of California Art in 1966 and the Santa Barbara Museum in 1978 (shown here). Beautiful details, including the splining on the back rail and the east-to-west curve to the seat. Walnut frame in original condition, with new machine caning replacing the broken original machine caning. Burned and etched signature underneath.

Condition
Excellent. Fine original condition to frame, with re-gluing to a small vertical fissure at one of the splines, and some slight mottling to the finish, consistent with age and use. New machine caning to seat.
