A fine early 17thC English antique carved oak maquette (architects model) representing a Gothic altar chair. The back decorated with a gothic tracery-shaped cresting rail inset with dagger-formed apertures above a back carved with linenfold panelling, shaped sides and down-swept arms over a plank seat and planked base.
Verso, the chair bears an old label dated “1618 – John (Surname is difficult to read)”. Could this be the maker?
Lovely colour and patination.
Condition – surface wear commensurate with age. Please refer to the images. The base has been split and naively glue-repaired however this does not detract and the chair still displays very well. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.
Size: Height 41 cm x Width 23 cm x Depth 10 cm (16″ x 9″ x 4″)
