A very exciting find for your very special doll.
This is a hand carved miniature oak jointed Wainscot chair that was produced in England during the 1830s period, possibly a little earlier. Its small size makes this a real coup for your collection; it will be a very special treat for a VERY special doll.
A Wainscot chair is a type of arm chair which was common in early 17th-century TUDOR England and colonial America. The chairs were usually made of oak, just like our wonderful miniature example.
The 'throne' back panel of this miniature chair features a carved dragoon detail arch top with a lower central T design flanked by stylized motifs either side. We see two downward curving arms and a solid plank seat raised on a front crest and four square tapered legs. To the crest panel of the front of the seat is a small hand carved Cross. The coloring of the wood is superb and the dry patina is equally good. This is a unique opportunity to own a very well made miniature chair from the late Georgian period.
Measuring: Full height 6 1/4 inch, height to seat 3 inch. Seat width at front 3 2/8 inch by depth to back 2 1/2 inch. Overall chair depth 3 1/4 inch from back to front, or 3 3/4 inch from back to end tip of arm.
Condition: Good with a lovely mellow coloring and centuries old patina. Not perfect though, it has been played with. A very old animal glue repair to the right arm where it joins the solid back panel. Traces of old animal glue to the barley twist lower arm supports where they fix in to the underarms. A small very old insect hole to the center of the back panel. Difficult to see but mentioned for accuracy. Some old age drying/shrinkage to the joints in general.
We guarantee that you will adore this exceedingly special chair.
