Product Description

A stunning original 19th century chair…

Dating to the latter part of the 19th century, circa 1890s, this is an original Victorian nursing chair in beautiful condition. Made by Eldred Sayers & Sons, in Ealing, London, the chair is quite charming in its look and clever in its craftsmanship

Finished in a light Blue with complimentary Dark Blue trimmings, the chair is strong and sturdy when seated. A hand made wooden frame with a sprung seat, the chair is complemented with original nails underneath. The hand carved nature of the chair, horse hair padding and the hessian style lining gives this great appeal and elegance. The chair is unscented and from a smoke and pet free home…

We are not quite sure of the external material (in light Blue) but it is soft and smooth to touch, maybe cotton… The chair could be used ‘as is’ for a display chair or as a centre piece in a room. Equally, one could pick their desired fabric and strip the chair back to its structure to create an elegant and charming chair of their own… It is simply stunning on the eye! Functional, on trend, comfortable and really attractive. Please note : As it’s a nursing chair, the seat height is naturally lower than your average chair, at 35cm…

We are offering this chair in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. There are surface scuffs, abrasions and and a some tatty areas to the cotton (or material as described above). There are also some faded areas and thin areas of material, yet 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…

Lastly, the makers mark (sticker) is stuck to one of the chair legs, giving the chair the icing on the cake…
