Luxury Design, Past & Present


A large and imposing Regency nautical chair made for the Alliance assurance company, the rectangular leather covered back, padded arms and seat surmounted by a cresting rail with a shaped central panel carved with a three masted ship in full sail flying a flag incised ‘Alliance’, all within a rope twist border and flanked by two openwork tridents, the frame and scroll-arms deeply gadrooned, the front legs carved as cannons. English, circa 1820.

Seat 27in (68.5cm) square. Seat height: 21in (53.5cm)
