A Remarkable Scottish Laird's Armchair

This astonishing creation incorporates carved mahogany and a pair of indigenous Fallow Deer antlers, of considerable antiquity; rising from ring turned, tapered and lobed front legs shod with castors, having a conjoining arc-en-arbalette reeded frontrail; housed within the eighteen point antlers, the back is of lancet form, carved with sinuous flowering foliates, having fruiting vines over, and capped by a shaped finial; the arms shaped and swept.
Scottish, Circa 1850
Excellent
Found only on bucks, antlers of the Scottish naturalised fallow deer are palmate - they have a flat area like the palm of your hand, with 'fingers' extending from them in adults. The antlers increase in size with age, this particular example being exceptionally large and mature.
