This is one of the best looking armchairs I have ever seen, hand carved from solid Burr Maple depicting Swans heads to the arms, the timber patina is simply glorious and in the right light glows. The upholstery is in good order throughout, the padding is the period original horse hair, it has that great crunch you only find with period upholstery. The timber has been lightly cleaned waxed and polished, there will be age related timber splits and general signs of honest age and fair use, structurally its perfectly solid and works very well.
The upholstery has been professionally cleaned and is in nice condition. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
