Nakashima Walnut Grass-Seated Side Chair With Stool
Description:

One of the more distinguishable designs from the studio of George Nakashima, this grass-seated side chair has a shaped crest rail with six flared spindles adjoined to an interwoven sea grass seat.  Four flared legs are joined by simple stretchers.  The rectangular stool with this side chair frames a sea grass center in walnut with flared legs.  This chair and stool both have a wonderful old patina.  The chair is signed on the bottom of the seat.  The stool measures 12.5" high, 16" wide and 18" deep.
