18th Century 'Gainsborough' Armchair with tapestry back and seat standing on square chamfered mahogany supports.
A Gainsborough Armchair (also known as a Martha Washington chair in the United States) is a type of armchair made in England in the eighteenth century. The chair was wide, with a high back, open sides and short arms, and was normally upholstered in leather or tapestry. Contemporaries referred to it as a 'French chair', as the most elaborate styles were based on French Rococo chairs from the Louis XV period.
