University Hall Chair
This beautiful hall chair, bears the coat of arms for Worcester College, one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford, England.
While the back, the seat and the front legs were in quite good condition, the frame had suffered some very poor repair work in the past, leaving it severely weakened and defaced. Careful work was required to re-build the mortise and tenon joints, to replace brackets which had been previously replaced incorrectly, and to restore the finishes, while retaining the character of the piece.
