Regency Simulated Rosewood & Brass Side Chair
Regency simulated rosewood and brass “Trafalgar” side chair, the top and mid rail are brass mounted with pierced design depicting a spread winged eagle and scrolling vines, the caned seat supported on saber legs. A silk damask cushion is also available.
This particular style of chair was fashionable after 1808, when the design was first published in the trade catalogue, ‘The London Chair-Makers and Carvers Book of Prices Supplement’. It was described there as the ‘Trafalgar’. The essential feature of a ‘Trafalgar’ chair is the continuous, curving line formed by the sides of the back, the seat rail and the chair legs. It incorporates the fashionable outward curving front leg, used on chairs since 1801. (Source: Wikipedia.)
