Here is a stunning quality antique English Victorian mahogany swivel / revolving office arm chair, circa 1860, in excellent condition. The chair displays an elegantly curved and arched bar back, which trails down and is secured by down swept arms. The chair seat features its original cane work seat, which is in excellent original condition. The chair design is quite unique with the shaped back above one central pierced splat (in the shape of a reverse heart shape) and two smaller matching splats either side, situated at the base of the arms. The chair revolves 360 degrees (please note, these early desk chairs were not designed to be height adjustable or tilt). The seat is connected via the revolving mechanism to the four sturdy splayed legs below, which terminates on brown mug castors. The chair is very comfortable to sit on and it has a fantastic colour and is in excellent condition.
The chair features a rich mellow 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.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms in the home, especially the office or library as it so comfortable. This item would certainly grace any home. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
The chair and mechanism are in original working condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the chair frame, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The chair frame has been cleaned and polished in our workshop. The chair retains its original cane work seat, which, being clean and free of damage is in excellent condition. The revolving mechanism is in good working order, having been cleaned and serviced. There is some play to the mechanism, but this is perfectly acceptable, and in line with the age of the chair, and will be found in all office chairs of this age. The chair stands on its original legs and features brass and brown mug castors, which are in good condition. This antique swivel office chair is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
