Lot Essay


This drawing-room chair is nearly identical in its overall design, carved detail and size to a set of six chairs, one of which is entirely English, from a large suite of Chinese Export furniture in a private English country house collection. The suite was supplied circa 1730 and the chairs are all constructed with beech frames, suggesting they were assembled in England.
