A superb and original carved Wainscot armchair, circa 1660. Yorkshire
This superb Wainscot chair dates from the middle of the 17th century and is most likely from the Leeds area of Yorkshire, with a large lozenge designed panel to the back and carved crest rail and ears of scrolling design incorporating berries. Raised on turned gun barrel legs, each joined by moulded horizontal stretchers.
What is most unusual about this fine example, other than its superb condition, is the detailed lunette carving to the frieze, not only to the face but also to the sides.
It should be noted that the chair has the most wonderful deeply patinated surfaces throughout and is of great colour.
