Circa 1625! -- This handsome oak chair is an amazing piece. Likely originating from East Anglia, the piece has witnessed close to 400 years of history. It has a beautiful color and patina, and is amazingly sturdy for its age. It has a twin lunette carved top rail above a lozenge and lunette carved back panel.
All things considered, the chair is in very good condition. There is a lot of very old historic work, which can be seen in the photos. I believe the planked seat is an 18th Century replacement. There are also later blocks and stretchers. There is quite a bit of historic wood worm that is long extinct. It actually adds to the character of the chair and is further testament to its age. The chair is weight bearing--sturdy without wobble.
