A fine mid 18th century Chippendale period mahogany armchair. The cartouche-shaped moulded back with acanthus leaf carving having out swept padded arms with moulded down swept supports. The serpentine shaped seat rails with richly acanthus carved front and side rails on moulded cabriole legs headed by a berried cartouche terminating in scrolled toes. The close nailed 18th century gros-point needlework executed in wool in shades of blue on a vibrant yellow background.
