17th Century Carved Chair 1670 Oak Charles II Carolean Hall Chair Baronial Side

17th Century Carved Chair 1670 Oak Charles II Carolean Hall Chair Baronial Side

A fantastic rare carved 17th Century oak chair in good condition. Made circa 1670 in England, this wonderfully decorative and extremely impressive chair will enhance any interior with real antique wow-factor and superb decorative charm. 

 

Ideal as hall, occasional chair or even dining chair, it is reassuringly heavy and made of solid oak. Most likely made in the Carolean period, when furniture was changing from simplistic Tudor forms to more ornate styles, this historic chair was crafted using wonderful traditional carpentry methods and styles of the time and may have been enhanced over the years, with the carvings possibly being added in the 18th Century.

 

It features delightfully ornate and charmingly primitive standout floral carvings to the back and seat front and scalloped carvings to the back borders. It has wonderful turned front legs with squared back legs and double side stretchers for structural integrity and shows beautiful rich colouring and age to the oak wood.

 

All in all this is a wonderful and extremely eye-catching historic carved chair with bundles of centuries-old charm, which won’t fail to impress in any setting. And as we begin a new Carolean period, it’s perhaps the perfect time to acquire a charming antique piece of furniture made in the previous one!

 

CONDITION

This is in good antique condition. Structurally sound, it shows to-be-expected marks and bumps to show its age and has signs of previous restorations to the rear upper back and a rear leg, which are only really noticeable if looking for them. It has minor historic woodworm signs for which the whole chair has been treated for good measure. Overall it’s a stunning, highly decorative and still very usable chair with a marvellous history and if well looked after it should be just as wonderful for centuries to come – please see the photos.
