Object History


Object Literature

This chairs wonderful shape is quite unusual, it is somewhat of an amalgamation between an easy and wingback chair, with the wings not so much flared but flowing gently into the rolling arms. It proves comfortable and it would be a good chair for a read.

Sumptuous curves, a real delight on the eye and indeed the derrière.

Object Condition

The condition of the chair is fantastic, having been fully reupholstered. All of the original horsehair and innards to the upholstery has been retained. It proves comfortable and the frame has been tightened. There is some light evidence of old worm to the rear legs.
