Edwardian inlaid elbow chair by Ralph Johnson (Warrington)

Our reference: TSP1057

Offered here for sale is an elegant small Edwardian elbow chair in mahogany and inlaid throughout with boxwood stringing. The chair bears the ivorine label for Ralph Johnson, who was a cabinet-maker who founded his business in 1860 and had two establishments in Bridge Street and Rydale Street. The chair back consists of a panelled top rail, four simple horizontal rails and a mid rail of interlocking rings. The chair has downswept arms that rest on vase turned supports. The seat has been fully and entirely traditionally re-upholstered from the frame by The Sitting Place. It is then finished in a lovely quality woven fabric by Clarke & Clarke (Orbit fabric in mineral) with a geometric design that mirrors the rings of the splat. The seat is raised on block feat which taper and are joined by stretchers. This occasional chair may be used as a desk chair for a small bureau or for a desk that has a narrow kneehole. Note that colours on screen may differ slightly from the actual colours.
