MANLY ANTIQUE CENTRE

AMAZING LARGE GEORGIAN STYLE WING BACK CHAIR


DESCRIPTION

SORRY, I'VE SOLD!

Every inch of this huge gentleman's wingback armchair screams the Georgian period.
It's hard to date exactly without having a look at the bare framework when
it was being re-upholstered but going on the legs its early 19th century.

The skill required to produce those fabulously carved ball and claw front legs I
would normally attribute to a 19th century craftsman and the stylish C scroll detail
on the out splayed rear legs also is more typical of the late Georgian, early Victorian
period rather than a later example.

We know the chair was previously purchased as 19th century and with the cost of
re-upholstery in this dramatic velvet and linen combo fabric the final sum paid was considerable.
The velvet pattern is a dark raspberry colour (rather than red) on a off-white background.
The condition is very good overall with only VERY faint discolouration at the front of
the arms (where you're hands naturally rest) and a slight mark on one arm as shown in
close-ups that I'm sure with some careful attention will pretty much disappear.
It's not a big deal anyway as you can see but mentioning for accuracy of description.

This is a big boy standing 116 cm to the highest point at the back, 90cm across the arms
and the seat cushion is 60cm deep.
