From the Age of Enlightenment


AN EARLY 18TH CENTURY WALNUT WING ARMCHAIR
The serpentine back and scrolled arms upholstered in 17th century tapestry fragments and later silk damask to the back, on cabriole legs with hoof feet joined by serpentine moulded stretchers, circa 1705.


The very same year Isaac Newton is bestowed a knighthood by Queen Anne.
