Antique Victorian Velvet Porters Chair / Armchair

$1,927.71Asking Price

About

This antique Victorian high back armchair has a very high back, which is hard to visualize in the images, so double check the measurements. It has a very grand, almost throne like look & could have been used for something ceremonial. This chair is upholstered in the original velvet fabric, which is still not in too bad a condition, considering the age. There’s a slight bit of wear on the arm front edges, on the braiding. The braid & fringes are also original. It has wheels & a loose seat cushion. This is a very impressive looking chair which has a medieval look, would be a real talking point in one’s home or could make a great film prop. Measures: Width 26 inches, 66 cm Depth 25 inches, 64 cm Height 68 inches, 173 cm Seat height 21 inches, 54 cm.
