Scroll Arm Late Victorian Boot Armchair



In Stock Product Code: A034

A very comfortable late Victorian club armchair Circa. 1890 on turned bun feet in Mahogany with cut back scroll arms and scroll back.  Completely stripped to the frame, re-glued, pegged and screwed so guaranteed for 40 years.  Fully sprung seat and back using individual copper cone springs with soft hair and wool build up.  This armchair comes with a chambered feather and down fitted seat cushion shaped to the front of the chair.  Exquisitely upholstered to include a soft lumber support in the lower back to ensure comfort.

This chair would have been made originally towards the end of “The Age of Comfort”, a period during which the Victorian furniture makers of the day pioneered furniture making and traditional upholstery using horsehair and lambswool.  This period produced some of the most comfortable furniture that was available and set the standard for cabinetmakers and upholsterers of the day to aspire to.  The methods and materials used then are the same methods and materials we use today to ensure we create the same comfort.  The reception felt when sitting in a truly traditional upholstered armchair is unrivalled, hence our promise of unrivalled comfort that lasts a lifetime.

Chair is available with feather and down seat cushion as priced, or we can undertake our tailored upholstery for you and re-cover it any fabric.  You can supply your own fabric or we can supply it.  We represent all the major fabric houses and are able to offer a comprehensive sampling service through either of our Lancashire or London showrooms.  Please contact us and we can send you a sample pack.
