A superb quality original painted pine armchair of the very early 1800's in the Empire manner.
The patina on this chair is absolutely wonderful and complimented by the rare pegged construction and natural loving wear and polish. Its a very tactile chair for any home, gallery or museum.
Rarely does a chair of this calibre come onto the market in such good condition. Barossa valley germanic immigrants sometimes were able to bring a treasured piece with them, or at the least made one exactly like they had back in the old country.
This armchair is a historic masterpiece circa 1820 or earlier
