Armchairs with Lyre-Backs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A group of four cast-iron armchairs, with lyre backs and floral motif, attributed to Wood & Perot.

Though the maker’s mark on these chairs is almost completely obscured, it is likely that they were produced by Wood & Perot (1858-1866), or its later incarnation, Robert Wood & Company (1866-1879) of Philadelphia. The design appears in Wood & Perot’s 1858 catalogue titled Portfolio of Original Designs of Iron Railings, Verandahs, Settees, Chairs, Tables, and Other Ornamental Iron Work.
