18th C. Country Oak Chair (East Anglia) with wheatsheaf motifs
A sturdy, honest, provincial (East Anglia) country, farmhouse chair made of oak (dark stained in places) with aspirational elements of Chippendale styling. The top splat shows a "wheatsheaf" motif with complimentary motif patterning along the side bars. More intricate "swirl " markings adorn the front legs and front seat bar. The stylisation indicates that the chair was hand-crafted for a reasonably well-to-do arable farmer. In overall condition is good for its age; some wear of the leg bases, gaps in the seat - but all commensurate with its age and does not distract (please see photos).
This is a really good example of a provincial East Anglian chair.
