Description:
This is a fine quality antique English Edwardian desk chair, constructed of solid beech, incorporating a revolving, reclining & height adjustable mechanism, with a newly upholstered green leather seat, circa 1910, in good working condition. Beech was the timber of choice for utility office chairs, owing to the natural strength of beech gain in functional furniture. The Edwardian desk chair is designed with a curved bar back, supported by lower fan back supports. The back secures to shaped arms on elegant vertical shaped supports. The back and arms connect to the seat, which has been newly upholstered, to a professional standard, in top quality full grain green leather. The underside of the seat has been re-webbed in the traditional manner. The English Edwardian desk chair sits on four splayed oak legs that terminate on English made replacement solid brass castors. The chair incorporates a restored mechanism allowing it to smoothly rotate 360 degrees and recline backwards. The original “J.J. Made in England” revolving mechanism manufacturer’s label is present on the underside of the chair on the mechanism. The seat height can be adjusted by revolving the chair, while the tension of the reclining action can be adjusted by turning the small wheel on the front of the mechanism. The chair is extremely comfortable to sit on as it features a lovely upholstered seat with a high back.

The Edwardian desk chair boasts a mellow golden-brown colour. It has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.

This English antique Edwardian desk chair would look superb in a variety of rooms in either a traditional or contemporary setting, especially the office or study as it is so comfortable. This item would certainly grace any home. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.

It’s helpful if you can provide us with both the landline and mobile telephone number, in case the driver cannot reach you on one of the numbers on the day of delivery, they can contact you on your alternative number.
