A finely hued ‘Yorkshire’ side chair, circa 17th Century and believed to have come from Darley Dale, Derbyshire.
Detail includes bobbin turned stretchers and unusual thistle head bobbins. A fine crescent detail to the back and well carved with stylised acanthus and swirls. The colour is fine with a deep orange glow grinning through the dark period oak. The seat is quarter sawn and there is a small age related chip to the front left foot, with other age related wear one would expect. This is an honest and pretty example that would suit a country cottage or indeed a contemporary interior as it’s organic form remains ever popular in an unpredictable market.
