English mahogany Gainsborough library armchair, George III period, ca 1770.
Of generous wide proportions, typical of the period.
With open, down-swept arm supports and raised on square legs united by ‘H’ stretchers.
This classic antique Gainsborough library armchair is now upholstered in pink and gold damask, and close-nailed.

NB.
The Gainsborough library armchair may have acquired its name through being depicted in some of Thomas Gainsborough paintings.
The Gainsborough armchair [also known as a Martha Washington chair in the United States [US First Lady (1731–1802)] is a type made in England in the eighteenth century. The chair was always 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.
