George III 18th Century Mahogany Armchair in the Manner of Thomas Chippendale

This wonderful and original armchair from the mid-18th century epitomises the style demonstrating the cross over from flamboyance to restrained beauty in a more naturalistic and detailed form, circa 1750, England.

Raised on four solid mahogany legs, out-swept to the back and moulded to the front each is joined by boundary stretchers. The carved and shaped arms meet the large stuff over seat and terminate in fluid foliage. The splat is a marvel of design, homage to Thomas Chippendale. Leading up from the shoe an illusion carving terminates in a trefoil, whilst French curves rise upwards into gothic arches and scrolls of acanthus seamlessly meet with the similarly carved crest rail, centred by icicles.

It should be noted that the age oxidized surfaces to this chair are wonderful and to find any piece from the period in original country house condition such as this is seldom seen.

The chair is currently covered in a burgundy leather that was probably fitted towards the end of the 19th century. This can be changed to your specific requirements.

Good. Wear consistent with age and use.
