This Regency armchair was constructed with a naval theme to commemorate Britain’s victory in the famous battle of Trafalgar in 1805 over the French. The Battle of Trafalgar was a naval engagement between the British Royal Navy and the combined fleets of the French and Spanish Navies during the War of the Third Coalition of the Napoleonic Wars. At this time, England was importing the best quality mahogany from its colonies.
