"Considerable effort has gone into the overall decoration of this chair which suggests that it was made for a person of substance and for a room that was equally exuberant within the colonial style. The over turned baluster front legs are occasionally seen in pieces made by colonial turners and furniture makers working in country districts and they often have uniqueness about them." (ref: p.207 Colonial Furniture of Western Australia 1829-1910 by Timothy Harris)
