Here is a fine quality antique English Victorian mahogany upholstered chaise longue, circa 1860, in excellent condition. The chaise features (when facing) a right-hand raised sweeping deep buttoned upholstered arm, boasting a stunning quality scroll carved fascia. The moulded back frame, which is also upholstered and deep buttoned, features pierced scroll carvings, sweeps down and to the sprung stuff-over seat. The seat frame comprises reeded moulding. The arm and backrest are solid in joint. The chaise has been newly upholstered, to a professional standard, in top quality cream silk damask upholstery, incorporating a floral pattern, finished with matching braiding. The stuff over seat has been professionally sprung and is in excellent condition. The seat is firm but comfortable to sit on; you do not sink into the chaise. The underside of the chaise has been traditionally upholstered in hessian backing material. The chaise stands on its original reeded baluster mahogany legs and boasts the original mug castors, which are all in good condition too.
This chaise features a rich dark brown mahogany colour. 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.
