An extraordinary George I walnut armchair

Defining collections – An extraordinary George I walnut armchair of fabulous colour, form and patination.

The chair is of the most lively shapes with well-patinated surfaces being either carved or turned. It is as if the chair was carved around the sitter who commissioned the chair.

The bifurcated cabriole legs terminate to a scroll and are connected by a detailed carved and wavy stretcher. Similarly, the shapely arms and cresting rail are also carved and tipped with scrolls. The bell-shaped frame accepts the shaped drop-in seat which is covered in a lovely needlepoint fabric depicting a mythical creature to the centre surrounded by scrolling foliage.

There are many historic repairs to the chair which merely add to its story, charm and by no means detract from its beauty.

Condition

Fabulous and original untouched surfaces with many historic repairs to the structure.
