Rare Victorian Walnut Framed Kilim Upholstered Howard Library Reading Armchair

About

We are delighted to offer for sale this lovely original Victorian Walnut framed Kilim upholstered Howard Library reading armchair A very good looking and well-made piece, very rare to find in original Kilim upholstery, this is a Howard model however its not stamped Howard & Son’s, I’ve had it once before stamped Howard & Son’s and its totally the same, the curved baseline, carved turned front legs stub back, the castors on this chair have been replaced, most likely they were removed and re-purposed as they are very valuable on their own. The castors on this one are stamped to the front Cope & Collingson who were the only company Howard trusted to make castors for them as they mirrored Howards exact specification The last fully stamped chair sold for £5800 at auction, this one is priced on the stamped being lacking. It is still a very very desirable model with exceptionally rare upholstery We have lightly cleaned waxed and polished the walnut frame, the upholstery being original Kilim is very hard wearing and in fine order throughout Dimensions: Height 73cm Width 67.5cm Depth 87cm Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point. This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehouses. Condition: Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade.
