A 19th Century mahogany open arm library chair

A truly gorgeous Victorian library open armchair with open arms and raised on bronze castors.

This chair has the most wonderful patina. It is a rich mahogany with lovely wear. This chair has a beautifully shaped seat, curved stretcher, and so many stylish flourishes. It is marked to the leg- undoubtedly by a great maker. We defy you to find a chair with a more satisfyingly stylish heft! Those lines!

The chair is solid and sturdy, and reassuringly heavy!

A joy for a lifetime. A beautifully stylish thing.
