One of a pair of walnut William and Mary-style open armchairs with turned legs, stretchers and arm supports and seats and backs upholstered in floral gros-point wool tapestry. The boldly scrolled arms originate in the rectangular backs and are supported by turned supports, the design of which is echoed in the legs and stretchers. The upholstery features the same design on back and seat showing polychrome floral arrangements in low bowls on yellow grounds surrounded by elaborate frames.

This barrel-back chair with out-scrolled arms has walnut cabriole front legs with shell-carved knees and pad feet. The shells end in ram’s horns at the top that demarcate the “ears” at the top of the front legs. Bellflowers descend from the shells. The shells, bellflowers, and feet are painted a darker brown to contrast with the natural color of the walnut. The back walnut legs curve gracefully backward toward small pad feet.

The upholstery scenes on the backs of the two chairs are different.
