ENGLISH CHIPPENDALE MAHOGANY LOLLING ARM CHAIR
Circa last quarter of 18th century
Item # 709PNW29Z 


A dramatic and bold arm chair crafted during the last quarter of the 18th century in England, the chair exhibits a forward motion that is powerful and most striking.  The essence of the rocaille is captured in the scrolling knee returns and the intense backward splay of the rear legs, each terminating in beautifully developed curled toes.  The chair is designed for comfort with a deep and complete upholstery, the back and seat both generously stuffed to allow lounging without sacrificing design.  The old surface is beautifully burnished from years of use, allowing the old restorations to mostly disappear into the finish.  It is a most fine seating piece for the discerning interior - we would recommend reupholstering it in a new silk to refresh it’s appearance.

Measurements:  28 1/2” W x 27 7/8” D x 38 1/2” H, 17 1/4” H to seat

Condition Report:
Old surface, not original but early with a wonderful patina throughout.  Restorations to most legs, one return inside leg replaced, returns on other front leg with modern screws.  Arms with old repaired cracks in the supports, proper right arm with loss to handhold.  Upholstery with some light discolorations/stains.  We have not removed the upholstery to inspect frame for restoration.  Sturdy, strong and comfortable.
