A William and Mary side chair with old upholstered chair back.

A William and Mary side chair, covered in an old (but not original) show cover. 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.
