A Magnificent Pair of Charles II Lancashire Oak Side Chairs

This pair of chairs have extraordinarily high backs, which gives them tremendous presence. The deep cresting rails are beautifully carved with a central stylised flower (often thought to be a carnation – or gilly flower), surrounded by scrolls and leaves. The centre panels are also beautifully carved, with a repeat of the flower which centres daisy-like flower heads, all supported by trailing stems and leaves.

The boarded seats are supported on run-moulded rails, and well-turned “bobbin and reel” legs, which are joined by a similarly turned mid-height stretcher. The side and back stretchers are plain.

Excellent rich, dark colour and patina.

Lancashire, circa 1680.

Height 44.5 inches, width 18 inches, depth 18 inches.

Ref 2304
