A W N Pugin, A Rare Oak Armchair Probably Designed for the Speaker's House

About

A W N Pugin. An extremely rare oak armchair probably designed for the The Red Drawing Room in the Speaker's House in The Palace Of Westminster, the room is mainly used for entertaining. This armchair although slightly different is in the very same style, design and proportionally oversized as other armchairs that were designed for the Speaker's rooms. The carved florets to the upper and lower sides are also on the insides of the front legs, the zig-zag details to the front legs all conform to other oversized armchairs still in situ in the Red Drawing Room. In thirty years specializing I have not seen another one. Made by Holland and Sons or Gillows of Lancaster. Retaining it’s original leather in distressed and torn condition and all the original brass upholstery studs which can be used again if required.
