This barrel-back chair with out-scrolled arms has walnut cabriole front legs with shell-carved knees and pad feet. The shells end in ram’s horns at the top that demarcate the “ears” at the top of the front legs. Bellflowers descend from the shells. The shells, bellflowers, and feet are painted a darker brown to contrast with the natural color of the walnut. The back walnut legs curve gracefully backward toward small pad feet.
This is a large walnut chair in the Jacobean style with open arms, elaborately turned stretchers, and tapestry upholstery. The top rail of the tall chair back is shaped with high oval arch flanked by two squared ears. The front legs are composed of blocks alternating with spiral turning and ending at the bottom in squashed-bun feet, while the back stiles are plainly squared and lean back slightly from floor to top rail.
The Chippendale-style arm chair with cabriole front legs is upholstered in red leather over the rail. The walnut front legs terminate in booted pad feet and have shells with pendant bellflowers at the knees flanked by deep scrolls. The back pad feet curve gently backward. The generous seat and curved barrel-shaped back are finished with large upholstered arms that curve gently outwards.
One of a pair of decoratively carved beech wood armchairs (fauteuils) that has been painted ivory with green striping. The fluted oval back with foliate crest holds the terminals of the scrolled out-flaring arms with fluting on arms and anthemion foliate decoration on the front supports with rosettes marking the joint between arms and supports. The chair rails are shaped and fluted with a small horizontal panel of drapery in a rectangle in the center of the front rail.
One of a pair of walnut William and Mary-style open armchairs with turned legs, stretchers and arm supports and seats and backs upholstered in floral gros-point wool tapestry. The boldly scrolled arms originate in the rectangular backs and are supported by turned supports, the design of which is echoed in the legs and stretchers. The upholstery features the same design on back and seat showing polychrome floral arrangements in low bowls on yellow grounds surrounded by elaborate frames.
