NEOCLASSICAL REVIVAL FIGURAL CARVED MAHOGANY ARM CHAIR
Circa 1870 w/ new tweed upholstery
Item # 602WPL10 


An incredibly striking arm chair from the third quarter of the 19th century, this gorgeous piece is carved with inordinate care from huge solid blocks of mahogany to form the crisp helmeted and winged figures flanking either side of the seat.  The feather detailing is positively exceptional, each preserved beautifully with just one more notable chip to a feather; the finish is old and probably original, the highlights glowing with a burnished ruby hue from natural wear and years of waxing.  The open arms are embellished with tasteful ormolu mounts of anthemion and floral rosettes, each crisply cast and beautifully finished in original gilding.  A certain austerity in the form and frame allow the figures to shine most powerfully, each resting over tapered legs that terminate in simple cuffs.  We have just finished having the chair recovered in a high quality woven linen tweed, this stuffed over the rail and most comfortable.  It is an unusual find and such a striking piece of history.

Measurements:  38 1/4” H x 22” W x 21 3/8” D, 16 1/2” H to seat

Condition Report:
Small chip to feather of one carved wing, some molding loss around stiles, crack in one ear of crest rail; finish is old and beautifully oxidized, probably original. Sturdy, strong and very comfortable with a new tweed linen upholstery.
