This is a lovely antique English Edwardian mahogany inlaid satinwood & bone marquetry corner armchair, circa 1900, in good condition. The chair has been newly upholstered in pale gold structured silk upholstery; therefore the upholstery is in excellent condition. The chair boasts elaborate satinwood and bone marquetry detail to the back, arms and frame of the chair. The chair back incorporates a shaped backrest, featuring foliate marquetry inlay panel. The wraparound arms are raised on turned supports at the front. Below, the chair back incorporates a bank of vertical turned spindles. The newly upholstered padded and webbed shaped seat is covered in in a pale gold structured silk brocade material, with matching braiding. The upholstery has been finished with the traditional hessian backing on the underside of the seat. The chair is raised on four finely turned spindle legs, united by turned cross stretchers for additional support. This corner chair is solid in joint and ready to use.
The chair boasts a mellow brown mahogany colour to the frame. As it boasts the original polish, it has a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and the years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to recreate this colour if it has been re-polished.
The chair would look superb in a variety of rooms, from the hallway to the living room or bedroom. It would certainly grace any home and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
