Antique Easy Armchair, Grafton Model By Howard and Sons of London
Antique easy armchair made by Howard and Sons of London. This is a special order Grafton model with ball and claw feet and show wood between the legs. Unusually for a Grafton model the base of the chair is serpentine, the lower rail is usually flat from front to back. This chair has its original back cushion with writing on and is stamped Howard and Sons Berners Street. Needless to say, this is a very comfortable chair indeed.

Late Nineteenth Century Victorian Antique Howard Chair On Unusual Ball And Claw Feet
Antique Howard and Sons armchair with scroll arms and cabriole legs in the manner of the Queen Anne period. This chair is very deep and comfortable and it retains the original and wonderfully soft sprung horsehair back. Once lost it is almost impossible to re-create this kind of upholstery so we are very pleased to have found the chair in this condition. The overall shape is very generous, wide and deep and with a good rake to the seat so the cushion and the owner do not slide out. The front legs are a great colour and will improve once we have had them polished if required. There are even traces of the original gilding on the carved motifs. All in all a really fine chair which is comfortable, ususual and elegant.
