Antique Wing Chairs

Pair of Antique Wing Chairs

Large pair of 19th century wing armchairs in the manner of the Queen Ann period of cabinet making. True to this design they have walnut cabriole legs with carved shell motif, c-scroll arms and a really generous splay to the back legs. These are large comfortable chairs which are much less money and much more solid than their 18th century equivalent.

19th Century Mahogany Gainsborough Library Chair

19th century mahogany Gainsborough antique library armchair. This chair follows the form of the Gainsborough chair with padded back and swept arms. An interesting detail is the intricate lattice work carving on the front legs. The back of the legs is chamfered so as to give the appearance of the legs being much thinner than they really are. A very elegant leg of the sort found in the Chippendale directoire.

19th century antique library chair

Early 19th century antique library chair standing on slender tall turned legs with rope twist decoration. This chair was made before the invention of coil springs (first patent 1829) and it has been reupholstered in our own workshops using the correct two stage hand stitched horsehair filling in the correct manner for that period. It was the addition of coil springs to upholstery of the later Victorian period which led to the box section becoming larger and the legs shortening to make room for the springs. This is one of the reasons why pre-Victorian upholstery looks more elegant than later pieces. English circa 1810 £1,850
