Pair of Close Boarded Chairs
Stock No 1152
Pair of North Country English Oak Close Boarded Chairs, probably Cheshire, of a good dark brown colour and patination, circa 1680. The uprights with Pyramid finials have a shallow carved and stained cut-out top rail. The main back Panel is deeply carved with beautiful drooped bunches of grapes, either side of a Chrysanthemum Flower head, and above a pair of Margeurite Flower-heads, all of these design motifs are linked to give a lovely design result. Both chairs have a shrinkage crack in the back panels.
