Here is a fine quality antique English late Regency solid mahogany tan brown leather library / drawing room armchair, which has been recently re-upholstered, circa 1830, in excellent overall condition. Comprising of a bow-shaped back within a reeded frame, there sits a large upholstered buttoned back, therefore the chair is extremely comfortable to sit on. The upholstered back can be removed for cleaning, by un-screwing the two brass screws in the horizontal bars in the back of the chair. The back is supported by finely reeded down-swept arms, with wider arm supports at the end. The arms are supported by a bank of ring-turned bulbous spindles uniting the seat frame. The chair has been upholstered at some point in the past in a tan-brown leather, with a buttoned back above an upholstered drop-in seat, finished with decorative piping. The seat can therefore be removed for cleaning if necessary. The library chairs on ring-turned legs to the front, with sweeping legs to the rear, terminating on old replacement brass castors.
The chair boasts a rich brown mahogany colour. The chair has been cleaned and French polished by hand to a professional standard in our workshop, therefore the colour and patination is of an excellent standard, coupled with years of care and cleaning it has received.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms in the home or office; especially the home library, office, study, as it is so comfortable. This item would certainly grace any home. So don’t miss out your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
