A Charles II period fine and beautifully patinated walnut carver armchair. The carved back with turned upright supports and crisp s-scrolls decoration. This chair epitomises the period of the Restoration and the fine details of this comfortable chair reflects the period from which it was made. The chair has a cane seat with a squab cushion.

Note: Behind the carved apron is an aged synopsis of the provenance of the chair on a crimply piece of paper. Part of which is decipherable under a light and magnifying glass. From what we can see is that the chair once belonged to a Charles Lett who lived in Newcastle and he bequeathed the chair to a Stephen Letts, in 1767 it was noted in a sale of his possessions.

The chair found its way to a Dora Letts who married a chap named Barrew. He gave the chair to his daughter Mary and she married a chap named Hughs. We think all these owners came from the local area of Newcastle.
