French 19th Century Embossed Leather Upholstered Wooden Armchair with Open Arms


A French wooden armchair with leather upholstery from the turn of the century (19th-20th). This French wooden chair from circa 1890-1910 features an exquisite original black leather embossed back and seat, as well as partially upholstered open arms. The back is adorned with a dragon in its centre surrounded with a myriad of exquisite floral motifs. The lower section of the back is adorned with a gallery of spindles. The turned arms, decorated at their end with wooden balls, come forward, straight to the level of the legs, reminiscent of the Louis XIV style. The wooden legs are turned in the front and straight in the back and are connected with a cross stretcher. The leather upholstery is reinforced with flower shaped nailheads. This French chair from the turn of the century is in great condition with good wear and aging on the original leather, perfect for the look. The springs have been reinforced, making this chair very comfortable. It would be wonderful as an accent chair or as a desk chair.
