- Please note that the above lot is now offered without guarantee of date as there are no documented precedents for late 17th/early 18th century 'dolls' chairs which parallel the design of the present lot. Although it may be of the period, it is also possible that the offered chair was made during the 19th century as a high quality piece of historical revivalism'.
