Pair of William and Mary oak chairs c.1700.



Item Ref



This fine pair of highbacked oak chairs are a country or provincial version of the fashionable walnut and cane backs and seated chairs of the period.
Sturdier than their city counterparts, chairs of this type appealed to the more traditional gentry and merchants of England.
Well carved and proportioned they are of better quality then many of the caned variety.
They are of good colour and condition although one of them has had an upright to the back broken at one time, but long since mended. On the same chair, and perhaps at the same time, one of the finials was broken off and repaired.
DIMENSIONS: 49 inches tall, 18.75 inches wide, 16 inches deep.
PROVENANCE: Yorkshire private collection.
Internal Ref: 9062


Height = 124 cm (49")
Width = 47 cm (19")
Depth = 40 cm (16")
