About this item


Victorian Gothic Revival inlaid oak armchair

Our reference: TSP1053

Offered here for sale is a high quality large Victorian Gothic Revival oak armchair dating to c.1870. The lovely shaped back features a turned inlaid stretcher above the head rail. Rope inlay banding in boxwood and ebony is found on the head rail and uprights of the back, as well as repeated on the front seat rail. The padded open arms are raised on a pair of arched lateral splats with central quatrefoil motifs as well as frontal turned supports. The ebony roundel inlay motifs throughout the armchair are in the style of Charles Bevan. The bow fronted seat is raised on turned fore legs with ebony inlaid detail. The whole armchair is traditionally re-upholstered from the frame by The Sitting Place (photos of this process are shown on our Facebook page). The armchair is then finished in a very complementary russet Bellflowers weave fabric by Morris & Co. This armchair is very comfortable and would look stunning in any interior décor. Note that colours on screen may differ slightly from the actual colours.
