A William and Mary Oak Side Chair

The arched cresting, carved with a central stylised carnation, flanked by oak leaves and daisy-like flowers (a very typical design for North Cheshire/Lancashire). The plain uprights, terminating in bold pyramid finials, support a single raised back panel. The boarded seat, set on a moulded frieze, and raised on chunky ball-turned legs. With turned front stretcher and heavy rectangular side stretchers.

It is worth noting the exaggerated rake on the back upright, possibly suggesting this was more of a “comfortable” chair than a dining chair.

Lancashire, circa 1690

Height 40 inches.

Ref 837
