C1760 Spectacular Chippendale Gothick Open Armchair

SOLD


This Chippendale Gothick chair is wonderful. It has everything a collector would want, apart for more appropriate upholstery. This can be arranged. The chair is in heavy Cuban mahogany, with a fine patina. It has never been French polished, the fate of much 18th century furniture. We have waxed the ancient, untouched surface to a rich sheen. The front legs are carved with Gothick tracery and the pierced splat is elaborately carved. The arm terminals are re-entrant, or "baby's bottom". The legs are joined to the seat rails with pierced spandrels. Even the stretchers attest to the high quality by their generous proportions in expensive mahogany.

 

94.5 cm tall, 63.5 cm wide, and 48 cm deep. The seat height is 45cm.
