Joined armchair, South-West Yorkshire, 1650 - 1700. The chair stands on typical 'gun barrel' legs.
"The most distinctive 'signature' of the Dales armchair is the broad curly profile of the double-scrolled pediment crest, in which the scrolled earpieces are an integral part of the design." ('Oak Furniture: The British Tradition' by Victor Chinnery).
This chair is of good quality, with typical West Riding carving and good colour, but constant use over the centuries has inevitably left its marks.
As these once high status chairs became unfashionable in the 18th century they moved down from gentry houses to farmers and small merchants then into cottages, often being badly treated.
This example has been restored and reconstructed and is firm, solid and ready to use for another 300 years.
DIMENSIONS:45 inches tall, 22.5 inches wide, 23 inches deep.
PROVENANCE:London Private Collection.
Internal Ref: 8938
