England, c1710 - 1715




A very early example with excellent patination, the “ox-yoke” curved arm ending in rounded terminals

and surmounted by an overscroll crest block above 2 vasiform splats interspersed with columnar supports,

needlework covered drop-in seat with molded rails and shaped returns to the front cabriole leg ending in a pad foot,

the other legs turned, all joined by X-form

block and turned stretchers; peg construction


Condition:  Excellent for age, with old repairs to crestrail at center upright join, and to front leg;

crestrail slightly out of level; well-patinated and faded original surfaces;

the age and rarity of this chair outweigh the normal usage repairs


Provenance : David H. Wilson, Teaneck NJ

David H. Wilson (1949-2011) was one of this country's leading connoisseurs in 17th and 18th century British furniture. 

He served as a consultant, appraiser and restorer for Sotheby’s and Christies,

as well as leading dealers and collectors in New York, London, and throughout the United States. 

Mr. Wilson was also instrumental in vetting many major collections for authenticity. 


NOTE : Corner chairs, also known as writing chairs, were popular from 1700-70,

the most being made between 1730-50.  This is an excellent hard-to-find early example.
