Here is a superb quality antique English early Victorian carved mahogany chaise longue, circa 1860, which has been newly upholstered, and is in excellent condition. The chaise features (when facing) a left-hand raised sweeping upholstered deep buttoned arm. The carved & moulded back frame, which is also upholstered with deep buttoning, sweeps down and terminates on the base of the seat. The chaise boasts a scroll shaped arm, which displays foliate carvings at the base and scroll end. The arm and backrest are solid in joint. The chaise has been newly upholstered in top quality pale gold colour structured silk and cotton damask floral upholstery, finished with matching braiding. The stuff over seat has been re-upholstered in the traditional manner with horsehair filing. The seat is therefore heavy, firm and very good quality. The underside of the chaise has been traditionally webbed & upholstered in hessian backing material. The chaise stands on baluster turned legs and retains the original solid brass and ceramic cups and castors.
This chaise features a rich dark red 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. It is impossible to re-create this colour if it has been re-polished.
This Victorian chaise longue would look superb in a variety of rooms, especially the living room or bedroom. The item would certainly grace any home or office and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional.
