Here is a fine quality antique English Edwardian mahogany and burgundy red leather revolving / swivel captain’s office arm chair, circa 1900, which has been newly upholstered, and is in excellent condition. This style of chair was also known as a “Captains chair” and boasts large proportions. The chair incorporates a curved, buttoned padded backrest, secured to mahogany wraparound upholstered arms, on shaped vertical supports. Below, the back incorporates a bank of vertical shaped spindles with shaped vertical arm supports. The chair has been newly upholstered with traditional horsehair filling and top quality full grain burgundy red leather, finished with hand-tacked brass studs to the perimeter. The seat has been re-sprung, to ensure it is firm but comfortable. The underside of the seat has been covered with traditional hessian in the traditional manner. This beautiful piece sits on four splayed mahogany legs, terminating on solid brass & mug castors. The chair rotates 360 degrees and the seat height can be adjusted by turning a ribbed metal screw on the underside of the chair. The chair also features a reclining action, the tension of which can be adjusted by turning a small wheel at the front of the mechanism. The chair mechanism is in good working order, having been cleaned and serviced. The chair is extremely comfortable to sit on.
The chair exhibits a rich brown mahogany colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
