About

This is a good quality example of an English occasional side chair in the rococo style, from the mid Victorian period, circa 1850, made from Beech.

The back is a classic balloon back shape, but with intricate cut out and carved detail particularly to the cross splat.
This detail is continued on the front legs and front stretcher .
Twin side stretchers give additional strength to this chair.

It has a good wool-work covered seat with a rose-spay design.
Overall this chair would make a very pretty bedroom side chair.
