American furniture manufacturers of the early 20th century imitated a range of popular styles from the 1700s and early 1800s. The Phoenix Chair Company of Sheboygan produced a dining suite they dubbed “The Colonial.” The suite’s elaborately turned legs are reminiscent of the turnings on a ca. 1700 Boston armchair in the collection of the Chipstone Foundation, Milwaukee.
