Pilgrim Century Carver Armchair, Turned Great Chair, Spindle Back

Pilgrim Century [17th century] Carver armchair with finials above vase turned stiles, the turned crest rail above a back having three turned tapering spindles, the turned armrests joining front posts, above a trapezoidal seat, the legs joined by double box stretcher.

Measurement: Height: 46.5"; seat height: 16"; width: 24"; depth: 18"

Item Condition: Imperfections are consistent with age and use; one arm and two side stretchers are replaced; the retrofitting was done with ash... natural color and patina matches the overall chair; it is obvious that these repairs were made very early in the chairs working life, likely during the 18th century. There are small losses to the top orb of each finial that do not distract.

Price: $12,500
