Full Description
A very beautiful early Georgian chair in excellent original condition and very finely detailed in solid walnut.

The square seated thickly veneered in walnut and with arched well shaped splat. Small scrolls carved at the ears of the solid walnut top rail - superbly executed - as are the very rarely seen trifid and braganza feet to the solid walnut front cabriole legs. Front legs with matching well carved scrolls at the hips. The back legs are ogee shaped and raked with a single turned stretcher.

In original condition with no later timbers, no breaks/repairs or significant knocks or restorations and no woodworm. There are two replaced but very old glue blocks beneath the drop in seat pad. The seat pad is newly upholstered in a fine quality heavy weight Zoffany (Brocatello) fabric in beautiful burgundy and antique gold colours.

A tremendous early chair of real quality, beautifully made by hand in c. 1740, of a sinuous and elegant form .... looks as though it would walk to you if you called

Strongly recommended.
