Antique armchair with shepherd's crook arms. 19th century.
An exceptional and very well executed version of a rare George I armchair raised on cabriole legs carved on the knees with shells and stylised acanthus foliage, terminating in bold 'French' scroll feet. The angles carved with 'C' scrolls.
The frame unusually with a cresting possibly representing a displaying peacock's tail, which may be an indication of a Colonial or Asian origin.
The double serpentine seat rail is a further unusual feature not often encountered in an English designed chair of the Queen Anne/ George I period.
Later upholstered in green velvet and matching gimp.
Excellent colour with old surface patina and in perfect condition, ready to use.
