This Week's Tuesday "Find"...A Very Unusual Flemish Style Chair

We found this wonderful small solid Oak, Flemish Style Chair on our most recent "Tuesday" Antique shopping venture!  We've never seen a chair like this, with it's "Mortise & Tenon" construction, the back is held in place with a peg through the tenon behind the seat.  This chair also had fine detail of turned wood legs, a heart cut out and a floral motif adorning the seat & back is burned (Pyro-art) into the surface gives this it's "Flemish Style".  The Flemish Art Company(at the turn of the century and into the 30's)  was famous for this type of decoration on furniture, keepsake boxes, letter boxes....just about anything made out of wood, thus any item with this type of decoration is commonly referred to as "flemish style", although items actually made by the Flemish Art Company will have a company stamp burned into the piece.  This little chair would be at home on the hearth, in a bedroom or that special corner in your home or cabin!
