The double chair back carved with interlocking C scrolls headed by a stylised pierced shell and flanked by acanthus scrolls.
The outswept arms with finely carved scrolled terminals. The three front cabriole legs carved with cabochons and acanthus leaves with ball and claw feet. The upholstered drop in seat covered in a period linen.
This exceptional settee is remarkable for its strength of design, quality of mahogany and fineness to the carving. It also is particularly rare to find such an example in such an untouched state, retaining a glorious patina throughout.
