The arms are held by sturdy ring turned vertical supports that unites the seat. The shaped backs are secured with two vertical supports, flanked by decorative pierced brackets. The seat itself is “scalloped”, which means the seat frame follows the contours of your body, therefore it is comfortable to sit at with or without the leather seat pads.

The pair of club chairs have been newly upholstered to a professional standard in top quality full grain brown leather; incorporating the original horsehair fillings, showing exceptional craftsmanship, with deep button upholstery to the shaped back-rests. The leather is finished with hand-tacked antique brass studs to the perimeter of the upholstery.
The front legs are raised on sturdy but elegant ring turned supports, terminating on brass cup castors. The pair of club chairs stand on their original ring turned legs to the front and splayed legs to the rear, united by a substantial crinoline stretchers (sign of quality), terminating on top quality solid brass & porcelain castors.
