C1815 Brass Inlay Regency Mahogany Chair


Elegant George III, Regency, mahogany sabre leg chair with tablet back inlaid with brass stringing. In solid mahogany, the chair has been reglued and waxed to a mellow patina (complexion). The brass inlay is an opulent addition. As you cannot glue brass to wood with traditional cabinetmakers' glue, the back of the brass was coated with egg white, and the glue would adhere to the egg white, making the brass firm in its place. Egg will stick to anything!
