A beautiful early antique provincial Georgian Chippendale side chair. Circa 1770 with Scrolled 'bow' shaped back with pierced Gothic arched splat back. Seat supported on moulded chamfered square legs with stretchers. llustrated in plate XVI of The Gentleman & Cabinet-Maker’s Directory by Thomas Chippendale, these side chairs are among the finest interpretations of Philadelphia Rococo seating furniture in the Gothic taste. They stem from the set of at twelve chairs commissioned by Thomas Wharton Jr. (1735-1778), a merchant and member of the prominent Quaker Wharton family of Philadelphia.
Inset silk seat pad (worn with age). We have left the chair in a more or less original condition with a treatment for woodworm and light wax to bring the beauty of the pine frame back to life.
As a genuine antique there is wear and use commensurate with age. Some wooden products may have signs of historic woodworm. As a precaution we apply a clear triple action woodworm treatment that also kills wet rot, dry rot and woodworm. Please look at all the images carefully and ask any questions pre purchase as we do not unfortunately offer refunds due to the size and shipping costs of our antiques/items.
