Description: Rumor has it that chairs similar to this one were made for a viewing train car. Passengers or guests would view Buffalo and other animals on the frontier from train cars. The upper class tickets sat in one of the cars that had chairs like this one. There are only 1 or 2 of these known in Buffalo, similar designs of other animals reportedly exist. The Back of this chair is carved into the head of Buffalo with great detail. The horns eyes and fur are all there and finely carved. The front legs of the chair are carved into the likeness of buffalo legs. Overall this is a large chair with some of the best FOLK ART appeal. This is one of a few chairs known to exist with this fantastic carving. We cannot say enough about how nice and rare this piece is. The carved buffalo head alone is 17" wide (horn to horn outside) and 20" tall (tip of nose to top of head). The Chair overall is 20.5" at widest point and 43" at tallest point.
