PORTLAND QUEEN ANNE CHAIR: HAND DYED RASPBERRY WINE LEATHER
British Prime Minister 1783-1783
The Portland Queen Anne, wing back style is a elegent piece designed with just about any environment in mind. From a home to an office, it’s the quintessential British Queen Anne piece.
It takes its name from the 3rd Duke of Portland, William Cavendish-Bentinck. The Duke succeeded The Earl of Shelburne in 1783 but he was only in office for a mere 10 months. Despite his swift tenureship, his did oversee the signing of the Treaty of Paris, formally ending the American Revolutioary War. Interestingly, Portland parish in Jamaica was named after the 3rd Duke of Portland. The Titchfield School, founded in 1786, also in the parish is also named in his honor. The school’s crest is derived from the Earl of Portland’s personal crest.
The most notable namesake, however, is our amazing Portland Wing Back Chair. This particular chair was made in our Manner 3 crafting style (scroll down to our crafting menu for more information on our crafting styles) and pre-dyed in eye catching raspberry wine. The buttoned arms to match the buttoned back offer great Chesterfield originality to this Queen Anne style. Finished on a tall, walnut leg, it really is a comfortable, glamorous and classical chair.
