For the past month I have been preoccupied with a painting class. Soon I plan to write about that, but for now here is a quick look at something that drew comments in my last (hastily written) post.
I included some pics of my house. Some of my readers were interested in a chair, so I thought I would take a few more photos and show you it in all its grandeur.
The tray table is one my mother bought in Morocco on a world jaunt with my stepfather. The loveseat was my mother’s and I had it recovered in safari fabric that parades lions and zebras.
This was my uncle’s chair, and it was always known in the family as “Bart’s Chair.” He sat in it every afternoon and sipped his Martini. After he retired and he and my aunt moved to Peterborough New Hampshire he sat in it next to the sun porch and dozed quietly. I was delighted that it came to me when the New Hampshire house was finally sold.
The armrests are carved lion’s heads with sphinx-like wings attached. The legs have claw feet.
Here’s a back view.
The rod supporting the chair back is brass. I love this chair. I have known it for my whole life.
There are a couple of plastic chilies hanging from ribbons on he back. Those are for 1st and 2nd prizes in the Island Chili Cook-off. I won them 2 years in a row, but lately I have been away when the cook-off was held.
