The top has a moulded, cornice above an elaborate frieze with dentil and greek key moulding. The back has three tiers of graduating, moulded panels. The scroll-shaped, outswept arms are supported by a delicate, column-turned section. The seat has a lid revealing a compartment. The hinges and escutcheon are original. The seat section has moulded panels on the front and on the sides. Standing on sleigh feet. Excellent original colour and patina. Second quarter of the 18th century, probably West country.
