'Anglo-Japanese' Aesthethic Armchair

Our reference: TSP1065

Offered here for sale is a very decorative Aesthetic Movement rosewood armchair in the 'Anglo-Japanese' style and dating to the 1870s. The open padded back features an arched crest with carved sunburst and additional carved decoration along the inner padded panel. The sloping padded arms rest on trellis splats. The sprung overstuffed low (28cm high) but deep seat, is raised on square reeded tapering forelegs with carved stylised narcissus motifs, and end in brass castors. The armchair is fully traditionally re-upholstered by The Sitting Place®. The characteristics of this armchair are in the style of Edward William Godwin. For this reason the armchair is finished off in Bamboo fabric by Morris & co in thyme/artichoke colourway. This Japanese inspired fabric was adapted from a design by Godwin himself. This is a very attractive and high quality armchair, which due to its seat height, would look best in a bedroom setting but may also be placed in a lounge/ living room setting. Note that colours on screen may differ slightly from the actual colours.
