Charter Oak Chair
Here is something else I didn't have space to include on earlier tours of the Connecticut State Capitol.
The center chair on the dais of the Senate chamber was made from the wood of the charter oak tree, which fell down in 1857. The top of each post has an acorn springing
from oak leaves, while the posts and arms are entwined with
branches of oak with leaves and acorns. An eagle is at the back center. The state coat of arms is in the shield on the back.
