Carved cresting rail detail on oak chair

Carved cresting rail detail, in sunburst design, on one of our solid oak dining chairs. The cresting rail is the horizontal rail at the top of the chair back. In the 16th and 17th century, they were often elaborately carved, particularly on armchairs, primarily to signify the importance of the sitter. A sort of crown if you like. The photo here shows the chair in our 'Old Flaxen' colour.
