These chairs have attached wings which emerge from the back rest and stretch into the arm rests. The wings join the back at a 90 degree or even wider angle so that the person sitting in the chair is completely enveloped in it. The wing back chair was actually designed such a way that the upper body would be protected from the cold winds drifting into old houses. They also protected the delicate skin of the gentle ladies from the excessive heat emanating from the fireplace.
It has 4 cabriole legs which rest on padded feet and the shoulders of the chair are slightly drooping and curved. This is to emphasize the feminine form of the chair, rather than the King George wing back chairs which have squared shoulders! These chairs also typically have carved scroll motifs on the knees and the crest. Some of the chairs kept in museums which have been preserved since the royal days are actually gilded!.
