Bermuda Side Chairs
A pair of Bermuda “cedar” side chairs circa 1720 having a yoke crest rail and shaped splat
with a shaped seat frame resting on cabriole legs with Spanish feet and shaped and turned
stretchers. 18th century Bermuda furniture was made with the wood of the local juniper tree
(mis-named cedar due to the similarities in grain of the two woods) until the supply was
severely diminished. The scale of Bermuda furniture was always somewhat smaller than
similar style furniture made in the UK.
Seat ht. 16.5”
