19th Century Fish Carved Armchair


A beautifully made and very unusual carved mahogany chair, American, mid-19th century, the nearly circular shaped upholstered back topped with cresting in the form of two carved fish facing one another, above fish- and fish-scale-carved open arms, over a rounded seat supported by cabriole legs, carved with fish scales, the knees of the legs with fish dorsal fins, the back and seat upholstered in eel skin, circa 1980s, which resembles mother-of-pearl in color. Wonderful clean lines, crisp carving. A unique and rare piece of antique functional sculpture.
