by Fellows Auctioneers




An unusual carved oak elbow chair of wainscot type, mid 18th century and later, the back with opposed scroll cresting above stipple-carved panel with date '1761' over stipple-carved and scroll-edged vase splat between palmette stiles, the planked solid seat with notched border between open arms on palmette frieze, the whole raised upon blocked and turned front legs, spindle-turned front stretcher, and carved parallel side stretchers, 39, (99cm) high.
Certainly part 18th century but possibility that elements are later-carved (stippling is a typically late 19th century trait) and repolishing has made determining f there are any later timbers more y be later as cut through decoration difficult. Crack through one stile. Arms may be later as decoration is cut through where arms attach at top.
