The rectangular back and seat are upholstered in the original leather, which has expected wear, and is close nailed with two rows of brass studwork. The open arms, unusually, project from the back with a block and taper with scroll ends. They are supported by uprights with baluster turnings. The armchair stands on baluster, mushroom and ring turned front legs joined by central and side stretchers. The back legs are straight. There is some old worm damage but the chair is stable and usable. The leather is in the process of being conserved.
Back Height 123 cm., 48 ½ in., Overall Depth 63 cm., 24 3/4 in. Overall Length 69 cm., 27 in
Seat Height 45 cm., 19 in., Depth 48 cm., 19in. Length 67 cm., 26 ½ in.,
