Portrait for Kids

That’s Right, It’s The Chair!
A fancy chair like this, but smaller, would have been a typical piece of furniture for the home of a gentleman in 18th-century America. On the back of this chair is a shield, which has 13 red-and-white bars, like the shield in the Great Seal of the United States. The Great Seal is placed on important papers, such as treaties with foreign countries, proclamations by the President, and on the back of the dollar bill.
