The outside and inside rectangular back and seat re-upholstered, during its last ownership, with an off-white and grey/blue cotton/linen mix fabric faced with close nailed brass studs. The walnut scroll arms are supported scroll uprights on ‘os de mouton’ (mutton bone) stretcher. Exceptional original colour and patina. This armchair is sturdy and suitable for regular use.

Please note the color of the textile is warmer than in the flesh in the main image, the other images are more accurate

Condition: A light scattering of old worm marks and wear on walnut commensurate with age. Old nail marks from previous upholstery on the underside of the rails. 20th century pine blocks in each corner on the underside of the frame to ensure stability.
‘Os de Mouton’ (mutton Bone) originated as a design in France during the 1600s. It is an elegant, sweeping form which has a timeless quality to it and harmonises with period, modern and contemporary interiors and collections and thus very popular.

Provenance: Private collection.
