18th century, the tall pierced "fish and bird" crest above a domed back featuring an elaborate urn, masque and griffin carving, joined by flat, paneled arms to the wooden seat, the seat removing to a storage space, the front and sides paneled and with carved foliate and fruit designs, raised on a plinth base.
h. 76-1/2"


In generally very good condition considering age. There are tiny scattered losses and repairs to the crest. Bird's leg on left has a crack. Edges overall with wear and small losses commensurate with age. Seat board replaced. Former hinges missing. Lower front edge with two drilled holes possibly for cords. Carved edge molding missing below. Back with minor shrinkage cracks. Retains old surface.
