Scarce 110-year old chair from the administration of President William McKinley. Wooden chair, most likely mahogany, bears brass plaque on underside of seat which reads, ''Executive Mansion / President / William McKinley / Comr P B&G. / Colonel Theo. A. Bingham.'' Colonel Theodore A. Bingham was responsible for renovating The White House, or the ''Executive Mansion'' as it was then called, during the Benjamin Harrison administration approximately ten years before McKinley occupied the venerable residence. The federal-style wooden chair has a rectangular back and simple geometric solar design carved at top. The seat upholstered in royal blue leather is heavily worn with most of the leather torn off, exposing internal canvas, and not intended for sitting. The rest of the chair has some wear and rubbing, particularly to bottoms of legs, but still stands firmly making it a nice item for display. Back part of chair measures 14.5'' x 19''; seat measures 16'' x 17'', and entire chair from floor to top measures 36''.
