Antique English George II Style Wingback Chair circa 1920

A handsome classic antique English George II style wingback chair circa 1920 having painted legs and the original upholstery. The silhouette of this chair was invented during the early eighteenth century and was designed to enclose the sitter in warmth during the cold winter months. As interiors were only heated by fireplaces it was easy for winter's chill to enter through open doors and drafty windows. By framing the upper body with wings this was avoided while maximizing the visual impact of the patterned fabric in the room's decoration. Please enlarge the photographs to see this chair from every direction. The seat measures 17" wide x 21 1/2" deep x 20" high.
