This is a superb hardwood walnut or mahogany, Chippendale back, side or dining chair which we date to the mid 18th century, George 111rd period, circa 1760.
The chair has a very well carved "Chippendale" back splat consisting of vertical interconnected ribbons with good detail. The top rail has a serpentine crest with central crisply carved detail with an acorn motif and well formed & carved ears with rosettes. The pegged and jointed legs are square with an inside chamfer back and front and the front legs are flute molded to match the side rails, with dovetailed "H" cross-stretchers.
It has a drop-in seat which has been newly upholstered and webbed but could easily be upholstered in a fabric of choice.
The proportion of this chair is excellent with very good width and a good rake to the backs and rear legs. The hardwood has developed a beautiful mellow colour and patina with age and polishing over the years.
Overall a fine quality, English Georgian dining chair.
Condition: Good
Wear consistent with age and use. Overall Good antique condition Wear as expected to the base of the legs from use. Beautiful patinated colour and good weight. Re-upholstered seat.
Internal Ref: F 440
