England, c1710-20


Queen Anne / George I Walnut Corner (Writing) Chair with Serpentine Seat, England, c1710-20


A very early example with excellent color and patination,
the "ox-yoke" curved arm ending in out-scrolling rounded terminals
and surmounted by an overscroll crest block,
above 2 vasiform splats interspersed with turned columnar supports,
the dramatic serpentine (or "horseshoe") slip seat over conforming molded seatrails,
the front cabriole leg having shaped returns and ending in a pad foot,
the remaining three legs turned and tapering, also ending in pad feet;

original slip seat recently upholstered in Fortuny-style hand-screened Italian silk
Condition: Excellent for age, well-patinated and faded original surfaces;
having expected old nicks and scratches, as well as repairs to seat rail and pad feet;
with fill to old worm damage on crest and arms.


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 -

particularly with the "horseshoe" seak and the overscroll crest block.


31.5" High x 30" Wide x 25.5"Deep
