This beautiful tall 18th Century oak armchair (potentially from Northern half of England, Scotland or even the Northern Isles) has seen some utility and been highly valued to be repaired and conserved a number of times over 250+ years.
- The tall back is two panelled with tall stiles that extend above the back and enclose two oak panels that have been adzed and bevelled by hand.
- The down swept arms (similar to some lambing chairs) extend to join single pieces which form the front legs and are chamfered to a narrow width as they head to arm terminus. The chair is retained with peg construction, is very robustly constructed and is a solid, heavy oak armchair.
- The legs have had iron stretchers added high up running from the front to back to retain the strength in the chair during the Victorian period as single pins / bolt / nut. It has also had a replacement boarded seat at some point in its life along with patch blocks to the end of the legs. It has evidence of historic wear, tear and worm unsurprisingly for an armchair of this age but is in good solid antique condition ready for use or decorative utility.
- The wear and tactility of the arms in particular provide a strong sense of the character of the chair and the attractive tapering of the front legs as they extend up and slightly out.
A very characterful antique oak armchair with a rich colour and tall presence ready for a new home to continue the next 250 years.
