An extremely decorative and well made armchair, the carving is exquisite, just look at the end of the arms, the base splat has a very Carolean look and feel to it. The upholstery is hand embroidered and depicts an 18. Century couple, the gentleman appears to be of some distinction with his elegant attire and grand sword, the lady well educated playing a unique and rather long banjo or guitar.
The seat base depicts a maiden playing a harp. The upholstery is worn and frayed at the edge of the base as you would expect and is common to see on pieces from this era. We have cleaned waxed and polished the frame from top to bottom, the seat base platform has been replaced with webbing at some point, there are no structural faults with the timber.
