Seller: atticacitta (97) 100%, Location: Dorchester, Dorset, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 273888213599 A totally quirky and characterful solid oak hall chair with ecclesiastical over tones. Showing all the wonderful and wonky signs of a handmade chair with more design aspiration than fine carpentry skill. It all adds up to a totally original and very handsome chair, which perhaps had its origins in a country chapel somewhere..... Pegged and tenon construction - 4 chunky square cut legs with stick stretchers that sit under a slab seat of very square dimension which has an edging detail and (subsequent?) rose head nail fixings; the seat back uprights are topped with lionesque carvings and the pediment shaped back stretcher has a faint poker work design; similar edging detail to the seat and is supported by two stick spindles and one carved totem spindle. There are later strengthening repairs to the under seat which have been fixed with large screws. All in all, quite magnificent. Would look wonderful anywhere.

I have cleaned and waxed it and researched it as best l could...as it is a one-off, the consensus is that it is probably early 19th century, possibly 18th century.
