George III Open Armchair in the 'French' taste

0.00

A George III open armchair: carved gadrooning enriches the cartouche shaped back, serpentine shaped frame and cabriole legs.

This model of chair is traditionally associated with John Cobb, Royal Upholsterer to King George III.  His work possesses an unrivaled elegance, as with this chair. He executed the French rococo style like no other English cabinetmaker.

English – Circa 1770

Seat height - 17” (43cm)

Reference:  The Grand Gallery: International CINOA Exhibition.  New York:  The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1974-1975. Exhibit 212, Page 217 shows a pair of chairs by the same maker.
