A fine quality 19th century mahogany metamorphic library arm chair in the manner of Robert Manwaring who was an English 18th century furniture designer and cabinet maker. The dates of his birth and death are unknown. He was a contemporary and imitator of Thomas Chippendale, and was considered as his rival. Manwaring prided himself upon work which he described as "genteel", and his specialty was chairs. This chair has an outstanding carved back and back splat, shaped arms, cluster columned front legs, and blind fret-work panels around the seat. In the years of handling and selling metamorphic pieces of furniture I find this article one of the best I have had, for quality and design and comfort.
