C1820 Elm Hepplewhite George III Chair
A charming Hepplewhite Camelback George III Chair in Elm. The mortise and tenon joints are all pegged, making it incredibly robust. The native English timber is honey gold. The upholstery on the drop-in seat is in 'as new' condition.
Three major furniture design books were published in the Georgian (1714-1830) England, that gave names to three styles of furniture. Thomas Chippendale's was the first and most influential. Alice Hepplewhite published the design book in 1788, making her husband George famous. Probably all the designs were actually hers. Thomas Sheraton's book is the last.
95 cm tall, 50 cm wide and 50 cm deep.
