Here is a fine quality antique English Victorian oak and leather revolving captain’s office armchair, circa 1870, which has been newly upholstered, and is in very good condition. This style of chair was also known as a “Captains chair”. The armchair incorporates a curved padded scroll back, joined to padded arms, on shaped vertical supports. The chair frame incorporates a lovely shaped spindle back, finished with reeded scribe detail. The padded back and sprung seat have been newly upholstered in top quality full grain olive green leather, which has been finished with hand-tacked brass studs to the perimeter. The underside of the seat has been re-webbed in the traditional manner. The chair sits on four splayed oak legs that terminate on brass castors. The armchair rotates 360 degrees, the seat height is fixed and the chair is not designed to recline. The chair mechanism is in good working order having been cleaned and serviced. The chair is extremely comfortable to sit at.
The chair exhibits a rich mid brown oak colour. As its 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.

The reclining and adjustable height mechanism is in good working order. There is some play to the mechanism but this is perfectly acceptable, and in line with the age of the chair. The armchair features a medium brown oak colour, having been cleaned and polished in our workshops. The chairs’ brass castors are also in good condition. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
