Scroll down for 10 more photos

This chair is among the finest Chippendale chairs available.  It is are a carved masterpiece with large-scale fully commodious seats and the added embellishment of a serpentine shaped seat rail, further enhanced with brass tacks.  

If you study the splat detail image with a high resolution device, you will see the intricacy of the carving that is created out of the solid block of mahogany.   For those who appreciate surface, look again at where the hand has used the piece.  All rests on square variegated reeded feet with original carved corner blocks.  Also of note are the stretchers, as they are beautifully designed and developed, and what one would want in a fully balanced chair of the best quality.   

This a chair is a masterpiece of the best order, and is conserved and reupholstered using new brass nails.  

We pair this seat with a beautifully developed set of five armchairs (see item sw01226).  Though they are different, all are of the same quality; they are very strong and work beautifully together.  We can sell the chair separately, or all together.
