Full Description
A beautiful and robust Georgian corner chair with pierced carved splats and well shaped top rail opening into lovely wide paddle arms

Original elm and oak timbers throughout with no replacements and very robust and solid - no loose joints - with a very good naturally rich colour and the lovely grain of the elm with its warm flashes particularly attractive here and has a good deep patina. The seat pad recently upholstered in a pale cream and gold heavyweight fabric with a sage green leaf design. Very comfortable to sit in and the seat well padded.

Both arms have a single crack at the mid-way point but these have been professionally repaired and are completely solid and stable. Whilst these are visible in strong natural light, in usual lighting they are hard to see and not at all unpleasant - part of the history and character of this chair and reflected in this low price. Seat furniture 350 years of age has inevitably seen a lot of use and very few period chairs have no repairs or replacements.

The legs are lovely, the front with channel carved detailing and all legs well shaped, substantial and chamfered to the inner faces and with original boxed stretchers.

A strikingly handsome, large and entirely usable Georgian corner chair at a small price.
