Object History


Object Literature

The influences on Regency design and taste were legion; from Sheraton’s neoclassicism, Henry Holland’s Anglo-French taste, the Greek revival of Thomas Hope, and the Chinoiserie favoured by the Prince Regent, to an interest in the Gothic, Old English and rustic. The Regency attitude to interior decoration often involved treating each room as a unit with individual furnishings and wall decorations in harmony of theme or colour scheme.

A scarce chair with beautiful lines and an ode to the charming venerable gothic.

Object Condition

The chair is in good original condition and we have only simply given her a light wax to protect the paintwork which is beautifully worn in the right areas. There are no losses or worm.
