DSC_0225 DSC_0226

A pair of George II (we love to  call all this cabriole leg material Queen Anne) upholstered armchairs from the early 18th century. These are English walnut and have a most wonderful nut brown patina. Notably, these are ex William Randolph Hearst collection and Vanderbilt collection. I have much documentation to accompany these for your inspection. I’m glad to provide copies of documentation on request. It is very rare to find pairs. These are in a smaller size and still carry the old Scalamandre silk (documents on this too!) in worn, old condition. The worn old silk has a special charm and is a good test of confidence for the owner who understands. H.43 1/2″,w. 26 1/2″, d. 21″, seat height 20 1/2″ with down cushions. $5500 the pair.
