A fine, mid-18th century, mahogany wing armchair

September 18, 2019 2:38 pm Published by

The pine, walnut and oak frame in excellent original condition (see photographs). The arched crest, flanked by ogival wings and conical out-scrolled arms centering a bell-shaped, loose-cushioned seat. Re-upholstered in a re-drawn, hand-woven silk damask dyed to match a surviving, green fragment from the period. The front legs finely, carved with anthacus leaves, scroll ears and ball and claw feet, and the back elegant, cabriole legs with a good rake. Excellent original colour and patina. English, second quarter of the 18th century.
