Description : This artefact is part of a dinning set. The chair is of a wooden construction that has been stained dark brown. The chair is of a fairly simple frame construction. The back is formed with two long wood staves which run the length of the back and form the back legs. The staves are connected at the top by a rounded and curved board that sits flush to the staves. Beneath the top board is a thin wooden rail that spans the distance between the two staves. Rising perpendicular to this thin rail and attaching to the bottom of the top rail are two thin wooden bars. The bars are close together forming two large square voids interspaced by a thin rectangular void that makes up the back rest. The back of the chair has a gentle curve in which the top rail and bottom legs are in line with each other while the seat is slightly off center. There are two square head bolts that affix the back legs to the main body of the chair. The seat is of thick wood with a shallow carved depression that matches the outline of the seat itself. The legs are strengthened by a rail that spans the distance between the legs on three sides, leaving the back open. There is a label affixed to the underside of the sea that reads, A.P.M. MADE IN POLAND.
Commentaires : The Moravian mission in Makkovik was built in 1896 under the direction of Reverend Jannasch. Torsten Andersen, the founder of Makkovik, and his sons helped in the construction of the mission. The original mission remained until January 27th 1948 when it was destroyed by fire. It was rebuilt on the same spot after the fire.
Fonctions : These chairs were found in the basement of the Moravian mission manse. They were purchased in 1948 after a fire destroyed the mission building. They were purchased from Job Brothers in St. John's. All three letters in the A.P.M. marking on the underside of the chair could be a company name or the A could be the company name and the P.M could stand for Polskie Meble, Polish Furniture.
