According to Florence de Dampierre in her book Chairs.‚

These typically German chairs originated in Prussia, which, in the 18th and 19th centuries, was a rich agricultural area. Vierlander chairs, made by Provincial carpenters, are characterized by their intricate inlay of local woods‚.

Most often made to commemorate a birth or marriage, it would take a further genealogy examination of the Eggers family to determine which was the case with this particular chair. Offered by Yew Tree House Antiques
