"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Walnut upholstered and covered in needlework (grosspoint and petitpoint). Queen Anne style. Needlework panels match with 67.197.1-.8 and 67.197.9 chairs. Although similar in style they are not necessarily from the same shop. Needlework on this chair depicts, on back, royal personage (probably a King to go with Queen on 67.197.9) being served food and presents; figures in exotic garb on seat and arms as well. In polychrome on blue ground. Outer sides and back of chair covered in blue silk damask. Chair has straight cresting; serpentine wings and vertically rolled arms. Seat bowed in front; row of brass studs encircle base. Four cabriole legs: front legs with shells projecting above knees into skirt; below with imbrication flanked by leaf carving. Legs rounded and tapering terminate in pad feet. Rear legs rounded but essentially square in section with pointed termanals.
Condition: Worn in spots, especially on seat and arms but needlework is generally in good condition, and colors better preserved than other chairs.
