An absolutely stunning example of an early oak Wainscot chair,  the carved foliate and scroll top rail above a paneled back, centered with an incised lozenge, initialed and dated ‘P D 1539’, over the board seat upon turned baluster front legs and plain rear legs united by peripheral cross stretchers, 103cm high, seat height 44cm.

Condition report:  5cm chip to rear left hand upright behind the crest rail. Further minor chips and splits in same area. Blocks to both rear feet. Slat running behind the board seat, indicting some level of restoration. Splice repairs to both sides at the joint with the seat rails. Restoration to top of left hand side arm support. General marks, gouges, and wear commensurate with age.

This was acquired by “The Englishman’s Antiques” from the “Tushingham Hall Collection” which is located in Whitchurch near Cheshire, England.

This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history from one of Britain’s most notable listed country houses, whose Tudor revival façade hides behind it a home steeped in history. The hall itself has been in the same family ownership for more than two centuries, passing from the ownership of the Kenyon family to the Vawdrey family via the female line and on to the Moore Duttons.
