18th C. Country Oak Chair (East Anglia) with wheatsheaf and country motifs.
An interesting, sturdy, East Anglia "farmer's chair", farmhouse chair made of oak (stained in places) with overall aspirational elements of Chippendale styling.
The top splat shows a nicely designed "wheatsheaf" motif. Complimentary patterning is etched along the front side bars. More intricate "swirl " markings adorn the front legs and front seat bar. The seat is generously wide.
The stylisation suggests that the chair was probably made for a fairly well-to-do arable farmer in Suffolk or Norfolk. It was located in Norfolk.
Overall condition is good for its age; some wear of the leg bases, gaps in the seat etc. but all commensurate with age - there is nothing that distracts (please see photos for condition).
This is a really interesting example of a provincial East Anglian country chair.
