close-up of hall chair coat-of-arms
Here is a close-up of the coat-of-arms on the back of the hall chair. I do not know for certain how or when my mother acquired it. She may have purchased it from an acquaintance who was downsizing, and I doubt she paid anywhere near the price quoted by the dealer. The chair looks quite old, and is very heavy. The coat-of-arms appears to have all the elements that are on other images of the UK royal coat-of-arms. The only word I can actually make out clearly is "mon", part of "Dieu et mon droit".
