Oak Corner Chair, c 1890

Not Attributed

This substantial and stately corner chair dates to the late 19th century, most likely originating in England or France. Made from solid oak and retaining its original patina, the chair exhibits almost cartoonish proportions of the popular bobbin furniture of the time. Bobbin furniture first gained popularity in Northern Europe in the 17th century, when mechanically lathe-turned wooden parts became a more organic alternative to historically rigid geometric structures.
