Here is a fine quality and substantial antique English Victorian beech swivel office captains arm chair, circa 1890, which is in excellent original condition. The armchair features a comfortable curved bar back, connected to wrap around arms, supported by an elegant vertical fan back. The chair seat is designed with a saddle shaped seat, which makes it more comfortable to set at. The chair sits on four splayed oak legs that terminate on solid brass & mug castors.

The chair frame is sturdy and the item is extremely comfortable to sit on, as it features a lovely padded seat.
The armchair features a mellow honey colour. It has a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
