About this item


19th century carved oak armchair / library chair

Our reference: TSP1047

Offered here for sale is a very good quality and decorative heavy solid oak armchair dating to the early to mid 19th century. The moulded padded back has beautiful sinuous carving on the top and bottom back rails. The down swept arms end in scrolls that rest on vasiform supports. The sprung seat is raised on faceted front legs and simple block back legs all terminating in brass castors. The armchair is entirely and newly traditionally re-upholstered from frame by The Sitting Place. The armchair is then finished in lovely detailed Meadow Fruit fabric by GP&J Baker. The red and green hues of this quality linen fabric bring out the rich colour of the oak show wood. This armchair would add charm to both a traditional and country style décor in a living room setting or even a library/study room. Note that colours on screen may differ slightly from the actual colours.
