Superb Set of Six English Queen Anne Chairs

No. R16473

Rare set of six English Queen Anne baroque carved walnut chairs in the Dutch taste in amazing original condition.

These chairs are quite fantastic with the carving on the crest (which is quite similar to the crest carving on some Boston secretaries of similar age), the shaped seats with center drop, the shaped “H” stretchers and faded golden color.

 

The seats are wonderful with turret corners over the legs and serpentine front and sides - much more complicated than a balloon seat.  Note the seat shape echoes the crest silhouette (concave rather than convex).

 

Book matched walnut burl veneered on a beech sub structure, solid walnut legs, stiles and crest. 

 

I regularly find that the better a piece is - the better condition I find it in, it was revered from the beginning.  These chairs were made by a very talented shop.
