Product Description

A stunning original 19th century chair…

Dating to the latter part of the 19th century, circa 1890s, this is an original wing back chair of French origin, stripped to its original build. It is simply stunning on the eye! Functional, on trend, comfortable and really attractive. The chair could be used ‘as is’ for a display chair or centre piece in a room, or it is structurally strong to be functional. Equally, one could pick their desired fabric or finish to create an elegant and charming chair of their own… The chair simply oozes charm and authenticity. The mixture of colours and materials is simply stunning!

A hand made wooden frame with a sprung seat, the chair is complemented with original nails and studs. The hand carved nature of the chair, horse hair padding and the hessian style lining gives this great appeal and elegance. Lastly, looking at the bottom of the seat shows an art piece in itself. Such wonderful craftsmanship…

We are offering this chair in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. There are surface scuffs, abrasions and nail holes across the wooden frame and some tatty areas of exposed material. That said, we feel the condition simply adds to the charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
