This is a very attractive example of a transitional Victorian corner chair with a Chippendale influence. It is Circa 1880 and has a Chippendale style ball and claw foot with a heavily carved acanthus motif on the knee. The skirt to the seat has a graceful curve and is also accented with intricate carving. The back chair support also has extensive carving matching that on the skirt. The curving arms culminate with detailed carving. There are two open carved filigree style slats on each side and three turned supporting spindles, one under each arm and one in the back. This beautiful chair is accented with a floral motif needlepoint seat. It measures 32 inches to the tallest section of the back, 19 inches from the widest part of each knee, 24 inches from front to back, and 27 1/2 inches from the widest point of each arm. The seat is approximately 18 1/2 inches in height. This walnut chair is very solid with the original finish showing very minor imperfections for the age of this piece. This is a very fine example of an elegant bygone era and would be a beautiful accent in your home.
