Antique English Queen Anne Style "Shepherd's Crook" Mahogany Armchair England circa 1890

A lovely antique English Queen Anne style mahogany armchair from England circa 1890. Please notice the elegant lines of this chair. The two front legs have the broad scrolled sections under the seat and curve down to a well proportioned pad foot. The back legs have a backward curve with a square shape. The top of the back of the chair has a moulded shape and the back also has a comfortable slant for ease of sitting. The most distinctive feature of this chair is the arms. They possess a shape known as a "shepherds crook" due to the resemblance to the staff with a curved crook at the end used by shepherds when one of their flock would fall into a ravine and be unable to extricate themselves. The use of this elaborate arm gives the chair a high level of visual interest that enhances its appeal. This chair is a wonderful example of English refinement and grace. Because the lines are so clean and graphic this chair may be used in both modern and traditional interiors. The previous owner of this chair had it custom upholstered in a contemporary chenille to enhance its modern appeal. Please use the enlarge and zoom functions offered on our website to see the graceful lines of this English armchair.
