This is a fine quality antique Victorian mahogany & brown leather ottoman, circa 1880, in excellent condition. The ottoman has been newly & professionally upholstered with traditional horsehair filling and top-quality full grain tan brown leather and benefits from a sumptuous deep buttoned seat. The seat is hinged and can be opened to reveal a spacious interior, which has been lined with brown fabric. The original hinges to the lid are strong and in good condition, which means the lid can be supported, whilst open, with the aid of the support strap / stay. The underside of the ottoman is lined with traditional hessian material. The ottoman incorporates a moulded mahogany frieze and stands on later elegant turned bun feet, incorporating solid brass castors.
This Victorian brown leather ottoman would be useful for storing magazine, music, clothes or bedding; it would look great in a variety of rooms from the living room or bedroom in front of the bed. It has a beautiful mahogany patina frame, which has been generated by the years of cleaning and care it has received.
The ottoman is in excellent condition having been newly professionally upholstered. Therefore, the leather upholstery is new and free from damage, rips, and marks or fading. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the mahogany frame and later bun feet but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The frame is solid and in sound condition with no loose movements. The hinges to the lid are strong and in good condition, which means the lid can be supported, whilst open, with the aid the fabric strap / stay. The ottoman sits firm on the ground and does not wobble; the brass castors are in excellent condition. The mahogany frame has a fantastic rich brown colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. This item is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
