A 17th Century Oak Back Stool or Side Chair
The back, with two horizontal scroll-carved arched splats, with wavy top edge, and hanging acorn pendants below, supported between two uprights with inward-facing scrolls to the tops. The uprights are decorated with unusually long split baluster turnings.
The inset seat is made from a single oak board, and supported by bobbin and reel turned legs, joined by a similarly turned centre stretcher, and stand on the original turned toes.
A very elegant example of a South Yorkshire/Derbyshire chair, which has a lovely rich colour and patina.
South Yorkshire/Derbyshire, circa 1680.
Height 42.5 inches, width 19 inches, depth 15.5 inches.
