Raised on ball and claw cabriole legs, well carved at the knees.

The arms with ‘Eagle’ carved terminals, 19th century.

The shaped seat now covered in 18th century gros point needlework of a shepherd in a central panel surrounded by floral designs.

The needlework retains its fine colours and is in near perfect condition.

Originally chairs of this period would have had contemporary needlework covers.

The carved Eagle is often a typical feature of American and Irish 18th century furniture.

Viz. similar carving on a fine chair in the Govenor’s Residence, Tryon Palace, New Bern, N. Carolina, USA.

The design of this carved walnut armchair is a re-interpretation of a distinguished group of 18th century prototype examples recorded in the collections of Percival D. Griffiths, Mrs David Gubbay, Clandon Park, Surrey, and the Victoria and Albert Museum (see R.W. Symonds, ‘English Furniture from Charles II to George II’, London 1929, p. 149, fig. 96 J. ) Fowler, J. Cornforth, ‘English Furniture of the Eighteenth Century’, p. 69, fig. 80.

Ralph Edwards in ‘The Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture’ a similar walnut armchair, arms terminating in eagle’s heads ca. 1735, in the Victoria and Albert Museum London. See p. 136 ill. 77.
