Wainscot Chair

Scottish, late 17th c.

Oak. Interesting chair: the back is two boards nailed to the frame and then carved and "framed" to simulate a panel. The carving is plentiful, "busy" and of high quality, with a particularly good crest. Take your time looking at the pictures and enjoy this unusual chair. And then look at the price! Well carved back with good crest and urn finials. Notched seat: front rail with reversed lunettes. Front legs and stretcher with soft turnings. Side stretchers replaced with thin stock, but possibly (?) original -- ask me! Otherwise no restoration, very good condition.

24" w x 21" d x 42-1/2" h. Seat 18"h.
