This early original George III carver has a lovely dark rich colour and was constructed in the 'Chippendale' style popularised throughout the second half of the 18th century through his famous pattern books.
A sturdy piece which at some point, probably mid 20th century, has been tastefully and carefully re-upholstered in a dark brown leather. It has a sprung seat and the carved wood has a lovely warm patina from the centuries of use. The back has an ancient but discreet repair which adds to the charm and authenticity of the piece. The wood has split on the second rung down of the ladder back (see photo) which is hardly noticeable ,and could can easily be repaired.
The age was confirmed by Sotheby's earlier this year.
This is a very useable and comfortable sturdy chair, not just a museum piece.
Collection only from Bridport , Dorset.
