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 covered in a pale blue hand stitched needlework of flowers and vines (early 19th century) in good condition.

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
