Description

A finely carved and extremely good quality walnut vase back armchair/desk chair with leather drop-in squab and eagle head terminals. Of English manufacture, circa 1890-1900.
A fine example of excellent craftsmanship from the 1900’s, this chair has been designed to be on display as well as being a practical chair which would have been used in the study or the drawing room. Often found placed to the side of an important piece of furniture in a hallway, living room and also a library room. Of superb proportions and very well drawn this elegant armchair has been carved to the highest standard from solid walnut in the manner of George I. The domed back with central carved shell motif and vase-shaped back splat are joined by serpentine arms finishing on scrolled eagle head terminals with feather decoration.
The drop in squab covered in a tan leather hide enclosed by a bowed moulded frame and supported by ornately carved cabriole legs with carved shell to the knee terminating on ball and claw feet.
In excellent condition having been fully restored using traditional methods with no breaks or repairs and structural sound this fine armchair/desk chair could grace any home.
As can be seen in the images this has a London depository label 'J. MAY'S DEPOSITORY,/Offices: S. Howland St./TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD W./ & 156 FARRINGDON ROAD E.C.
Please note this is a desk chair of solid dense walnut timber (very heavy) indicating it would date to the late 19th century rather than later 20th-century chairs which can be seen. The design and carving is of the finest quality.
