George II Carved Mahogany Gainsborough Library Armchair

George II Carved Mahogany Gainsborough Library Armchair

English

circa 1755

The camel-back shaped chair has been recently re-upholstered in a light green and gold Gainsborough fabric. The close studding to the firm upholstery accentuates the style and overall shape of the armchair. The raised mahogany arm supports with stiff leaf decoration sit below the out-swept upholstered arm. The well turned solid mahogany arms terminate with carved singular four flower heads. The generous but firm seat stands on four original mahogany legs, raised on pad feet with concealed leather castors.
