Charles II side chair

An elegant period chair purchased from the same estate as the walnut gateleg (#25659).

The tall, canted back is supported by barley-turned posts, each rising to the height of the exuberantly carved crest and terminating in a proud finial.

Between the crest and the lower rail are two rectangular splats that still enclose the original caning.

The base consists of a pleasing combination of carved and turned elements, and the cane in the original cane seat was replaced long ago with a well-patinated walnut board set atop the frame.

The feet have their full original height.

 

The crest has been repaired.

It appears that the chair tipped over, a common occurrence with these tall chairs, and parts of the original crest were replaced and re-carved.

The repair is so good that it is hardly noticeable from the front and only upon close examination from the rear.

 

Dimensions: Seat: 18-5/8” wide at the front; 15” deep; Height: 51-1/4”; Seat height: 19-1/2”

English, ca. 1680
