Antique Baroque Style Large Arm Chairs, Ca. 1890
Europe Ca. 1890
An unusual pair of late 19th century walnut Baroque style arm chairs. All the primary wood elements are rope twist carved including the feet. The upholstery is a dark red leather with gold accents and brass tack heads. The rear stiles are topped with brass ribbed ball finials. The seat rails are covered in dark red gold tooled leather with bands of pattered fabric which is possibly part horse hair.
Structurally very sound. The finish is probably the original with appropriate wear. The upholstery has a very pleasing antique appearance except for the tops of the seats. A careful upholsterer could recover or cover over just the seats for very serviceable use as the spring cushioned foundation seems to be fine.
44 7/8" high, 23" deep, 28 1/2" wide ( at the feet )
