A William and Mary side chair with new leather upholstery, the chair now appears as it originally did.

A William and Mary side chair. The museum that owns the chair wanted it to be upholstered in leather that was reflective of the original material used. A companion chair was located at the Albany Institute of History and Art. This example chair served as a guide to determine the leather needed to re-upholster the chair.
