Here is a fine quality antique English Edwardian solid beech, birch & elm revolving office desk arm chair, circa 1901 – 1910, in excellent original condition. Incorporating a “smoker’s bow” design, the armchair features a comfortable curved bar back, supported by vertical back splats, connected to wrap around arms, raised on shaped arm supports. The back and arms connect to an elm saddle shaped seat, displaying lovely grain configuration. The chair has also been cleaned and French polished, by hand, to a professional standard, therefore the colour and patination is of an excellent standard. The chair sits on four splayed solid beech legs that terminate on the original steel roller ball castors. The chair incorporates a revolving cast iron mechanism and it rotates 360 degrees. The seat does not recline and it is not height adjustable – many Victorian and early Edwardian office chairs were constructed this way. The chair mechanism has been cleaned, restored and serviced and is in excellent working order. The chair frame is sturdy and the item is extremely comfortable to sit on, as it features a lovely shaped seat.
The armchair features a mellow colour. It has a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This Edwardian desk chair would look superb in a variety of rooms in the home, especially the office or study as it is so comfortable. This item would certainly grace any home. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
