Solid walnut cabriole leg chair c.1730.
This nice example of a plain good quality walnut George I chair came to me having seen better days. But it’s potential could be seen in the good proportions, especially the curve to the knee of the cabriole with nice detailing in the carved c-scrolls.
The work involved letting in new timber to build up the height of the chair and then shaping the feet to follow the sweep of the legs. Also replacing the missing ears at the shoulders of the legs, shaping and carving these to match.
