Georgian Side Chair, Walnut, Needlepoint Seat, ca. 1920's
Peso Priced Item. This English chair was made in the 1920-30's as an exact copy of a period Georgian side chair. The wood is walnut with a wonderful patina. There is a small opening in the needle point, as shown in my photos. It is such a good fabric I would suggest getting a repair made to maintain the characted of the chair. The padding under the needlepoint is a blend of straw and horse hair, as was done in the 17th , 18th & 19th C. The last photo is off the internet of a Georgian chair in a British museum. Here is the story of the Georgian period: Georgian style lasted nearly 100 years (1714 to 1801) and is named for King George I, George II, and George III of Britain. Georgian furniture replaced walnut with mahogany as its wood of choice due to its durability. Influenced by the art and architecture of Italy, early Georgian furniture incorporated decorative pediments, masks, and sphinxes. Three important designers are distinguished during this Golden Age of Furniture: Chippendale, Hepplewhite, and Sheraton. Common pieces of furniture are side tables with marble tops, chairs with shell shaped backs, and furniture legs with fish-scale scrolls. Dimensions are 41 1/2" tall, 22" wide at the seat. Very good condition.
