Regency Admiral’s Chair
This chair is the pattern chair from a commission which included a Regency ‘D’ end table with extension leaf and six chairs. The name ‘Admiral’s Chair’ came from the carved rope twist lumber rail, signifying the nautical influence of the day.
Swietenia – Brazilian Mahogany is the timber used. The reeding on the back legs and top rail was cut with a scratch-stock, one of the earliest tools in the cabinet making trade. The finish is a light-stain and French polish.
