Late 18thC Country-Made Chippendale Style Elbow Chair
A very nice country-made Chippendale style mahogany piece from around the time of George III and in very good condition for its age, with a yoke-shaped top to the back, terminating in carved scrolls to either side, over urn-shaped pierced splat and shaped inverse-tapering side supports that are contiguous with the square rear legs, shaped arm-rests with scroll ends supported on lovely ring-turned balusters, the drop-in seat pad is likely to have been a later innovation and has clearly been renewed in the 20thC but it's plump, firm and covered in a blue-grey velour, set into a caddy-moulded frame over square front legs with moulded outer corners and the legs are united by an H-stretcher, this modestly-proportioned elbow chair will charm in any elegant, period-furnished home and will surely attract the flattering attention of family & guests alike.
Max. Width at Arms 59cm x Depth 47cm (23.25" x 18.5")
Height to Centre of Back 94.5cm (37.25") & Height to Top of Seat Pad c48.5cm (c19")
As this piece dates from the late 18thC you may expect the mature character & patina of considerable age, together with minor wear & tear commensurate with normal use, including some very slight loosening of the joints but, otherwise, it's in very good, clean & sound condition and is ready to use in your home.
