Rare 18th Century George II Mahogany Armchair with Carved Shepherds Crook Arms

A fine example of a bold early George II mahogany dressing chair with carved shepherds crook arms, circa 1725-1740.

Raised on two eared spadefoot cabriole legs to the front and two turned to the back, the large bell-shaped seat is crossbanded to both the face and edge and is fitted with a large drop-in seat.
The shaped shepherds crook or carved ‘scrowl elbows’ join from the seat and seamlessly into the shaped upright supports and crest rail.

‘Scrowl elbows’ is a reference to a receipt dating back to 1723 when Thomas Green supplied a dressing chair described as ‘a large walnut tree dressing chair with carved feet and carved scrowl elbows’.

This is an extremely accomplished example, of a great design, that is solid and very comfortable.

Condition

Good. Wear consistent with age and use.
