England, c1710-15

 

Queen Anne Walnut & Strapwork Marquetry Side Chair, England, c1710-15  

 

Retaining excellent color and original surfaces,
the rounded rectangular crestrail over a cyma-curved vasiform splat,
inlaid with a cartouche of holly and boxwood strapwork marquetry (possibly heraldic),
between corresponding curved stiles reeded to the interior,
over a trapezoidal slip seat, the front legs cabriole and ending pad feet,
the rear block and turned and joined by H-form block-and-turned stretchers

 

Note : The marquetry on early 18th century chairs, particularly the cyma-curved splats,

occurred for only a brief period,generally noted from eastern England,

and possibly inlaid in The Netherlands.
The decoration included both heraldic devices, and purely fanciful designs.
This inlay features' a dove, possibly on a stylized garb (bundled wheat sheath)
in beak, a sheath of wheat, within a shield and below a pseudo strapwork coronet'.
A crest with a dove, a wheat sheath in mouth, on a garb
is associated with the families of Ouldfield (Lincolnshire), & Littlefield (Fairbairn's 93.3).
However the marquetry could also be purely fanciful
.

 

Condition: Excellent; a few small losses & fill to the marquetry;
chip to right front foot; having nicks,

scratches and small losses as expected with age and usage

 

40" High x 21" Wide x 19" Deep
