George III Mahogany Serpentine Window Seat in the French Taste

George III Mahogany Serpentine Window Seat in the French Taste

In the manner of THOMAS CHIPPENDALE THE YOUNGER

England

circa 1785

This is an elegant 18th Century serpentine window seat with a carved centre section of flowers, upturned 'C' scroll arms and shell decorated cabriole legs standing on French toes. The solid mahogany frame is beautifully carved in the French Chippendale style that was fashionable in London during the third quarter of the 18th Century.

Condition

The window seat has been recently re-upholstered with the original horse hair stuffing and a recently purchased yellow/gold Gainsborough damask.

Literature

The window seat is in remarkable condition and the frame shows no signs of repair. The legs are in the same condition and have no breakages. The seat is strong and sturdy. We have several images available of the frame restored but not upholstered to back up our claims of originality.
