Seller: rowhouseantiques (223) 100%, Location: Reading, Ships to: GB, Item: 273865151641 Details and Discussion: A substantial and handsome 17th century oak armchair, of heavy and solid construction, a dark colour with warm tones. Panelled armchairs predate the completely open armchair that emerged as the standard form towards the middle of the seventeenth century; the panelled sides restrict the effects of draughts on the sitter so the style continued beyond this time!The chair has stop chamfered legs and arms and a plain cresting rail. Restrained running ornamental carving lines the top rail and guilloche carving along the stiles.All timbers appear original, stretchers and panels; however, the right arm seems to be a well matched, similarly coloured and figured replacement. There is no sign that there has ever been a stretcher between the back legs; the strength of the back panel and top rail is sufficient.The seat height is the full 18 inches, suggesting no loss of height.An ownership inscription can be seen branded on the left hand stile on the back of the armchair. These marks were added during inventories of wealthier households. The letter I of the IH is highly stylised and worthy of further research.A handsome and substantial panelled armchair. Dimensions: 1130 mm back height, 460 mm seat height, 550 mm seat width and 400 mm seat depth. 44 1/2", 18", 21 3/4" and 16" respectively.Row House Antiques Row House Antiques is a continually updated collection of relaxed and easy to live country furniture.
