Description

An eighteenth century carved mahogany library tub chair with a moulded show wood frame in close nailed green hide.
Ca 1770-1780.

NB. This is a particularly fine and sophisticated antique English George lll period example. These tub chairs continued to be produced throughout the 19th and 20th centuries in large numbers. Therefore any prospective purchaser ought to request a detailed commitment as to date when purchasing from any source.
