Armchair, c.1840, mahogany

Maghogany, with horsehair seat

Museum number: XF60

Curatorial note

With elegant cross-rails (incorporating pairs of paterae) and sabre legs. One of a pair with XF61 and with the set XF62-XF66 and XF85. This chair was not part of Soane's collection and is almost certainly from a set of chairs belonging to first Curator, George Bailey (Curator 1837-1860).
