Antique Georgian Library Chair, ca. 1760

In the period, these upholstered armchairs were also referred to as easy chairs, French chairs, library chairs, or lolling chairs. This mahogany example is probably English but possibly American. The serpentine crest arches above a padded back with open arms set atop a stretcher base with Marlboro legs. The wood is in a fine old finish. Minor repairs and correct later brass castors. An essential piece in proper order and ready to use and display in your living room or study.
H. 40.5″ w. 28″, d. 30″. $2900.
