A Very Fine James I Oak Armchair
The very deeply nulled top rail, with an integral double scroll cresting, sits above an outstanding carved panel, of an unusual flower head strapwork design.
The highly impressive wide seat is formed from a single oak board, held in place by six large square oak pegs, which extend through the carved seat rails.
The slightly down-curved arms rest on baluster-turned supports which continue down to form the legs, which are joined by plain stretchers.
Salisbury, or the surrounding area, circa 1620.
Height 43 inches, width 26 inches, depth 22.5 inches.
