OK, it's a reproduction 'in the style of Hepplewhite' dining chair but it's still very old, probably late 1880's. It's stamped VII so is from a large dining set. Very generous proportions. Nicely worn with some great copper botch-repairs (see detail) adding very much to the charm. The seat is re-upholstered and is covered in a bright linen which I think is only partly successful so I'm likely to re-cover this and am happy to do so free for anyone who wants to buy it (and has some material).
This chair is for sale.
