American Empire Mahogany Armchair


Mid-19th century American Empire chair, stripped, tightened and finish restored and polished, ready for your upholsterer's workbench. It is most unusual to find seating of this period and style in this size. Sofas and settees were prevalent but I have never seen another example of the form as a single arm chair. Nicely carved detail including scrolled acanthus leaf arms including small rosettes at end of armrest scrolls, four lions paw feet on cornucopia legs, dragooned centre seat rail with inlaid brass and griffon or eagles heads. See photos of original upholstery with pair of bolster cushions prior to restoration.
