Theodore Alexander The Raconteur Dining Chair
ca. 1790 British Armchair with shield back. Painted and gilt Beechwood.
This chair was exhibited by Henry Eyles in Class XXVI (Furniture) in the Great Exhibition of 1851. The unconventional use of the porcelain plaque with the image of Queen Victoria, and the Royal Arms embroidered on the seat, demonstrated his creative skills as well as offering a form of homage to the monarch. This technical ingenuity and combination of unusual materials was typical of much of the furniture shown in 1851.
