Product Description

A stunning original Edwardian captains chair…

Dating to the early part of the 20th century, circa 1920, this is an original swivel chair on casters. It is simply stunning! Hand carved in oak, and complemented with a pinned ‘Mustard Yellow’ leather seat cover. We are not sure if its a faux or simply leather, but certainly material true to the period. The rusty pins that secure the seat cover show the original craftsman ship and then the best bit… Simply sit on the chair and swivel. The chair is comfortable and the top section of the chair (the Mustard bit) will swivel with a 360 degree rotation. The even better bit! Made by Hillcrest, this chair is tension sprung, which means one can also rock back and forth and side to side (a little) with a simple push down of ones bottom. It basically means, the chair has a lot of movement when seated, allowing one to move with the chair when seated. Let’s just say it’s a brilliant piece of engineering and a comfortable chair

Although the chair shows it age in places, the chair retains a good structure being both heavy and strong. It is comfortable to sit on and the arm supports complement ones upright position when seated. The leather material is a little tatty in places yet this is not detrimental to the overall function and appearance of the chair. This is truly elegant in appearance and one you could fall in love with…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and abrasions across the leather material and there are some tatty areas in places. It is generally clean and tidy and unscented making this a stand out piece. Underneath is rusty and tatty in areas, yet this does not impact the performance of the chair, just aesthetics. We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
