Selling with NO RESERVE is this sturdy set of shabby French Victorian style chairs. They feature the original worn off white paint and super carvings. Nice heart shaped backs. The upholstery is original but does need cleaning at the very least. The frames of both chairs are sturdy and solid. Have a look at the pictures w I will describe them further. MEASUREMENTS: 37 " tall from the floor to the top of the back. 26" wide and 25" deep. The seat is 18 1/2" off the floor, 20 1/2" deep from the front to the inside of the back and 21" wide between the arms.
's a view of the right and left sides.
One chair has a large spot on the back of the fabric. The other chair does not.
's what the inside of the backs look like. This is the chair on the right. The backs are not only nicely shaped but also curved or bowed, making them very comfortable.
's the back of the chair on the left.
's what the seat area looks like of the chair on the right.
's the seat area of the chair on the left.
This left chair shows a small area of wear on the front lip of the seat as shown. I know it's hard to see in the photo and in person, it is apparent upon close inspection.
's what the arm and leg area look like. Nice Victorian style carving with a French style foot.
The under sides have no springs pushing through.
And a final view. This set is selling with NO RESERVE so bid to win! Be sure and check my other auctions. Thanks.
Description (revised) Item Specifics - Antique Furniture Product: Chair Age: 1800-1899 Style: Victorian Original/Reproduction: Original Region of Origin: American SquareTrade Seal Member SquareTrade Seal Member Selling with NO RESERVE is this unusual period Victorian upholstered chair. The frame is solid walnut and moulded very much like that of the Victorian marble top tables of the era 1845-1870. It sits very comfortably and has no funny smells or odors. Have a look at the pictures w I will describe it further. MEASUREMENTS:overall 26" wide, 35" from the back w it touches the wall to the front of the seat and 36" tall from the floor to the top of the back. The seat is 16 1/2" from the front lip to the floor and 19" wide between the arms. Notice the weird and comfortable form of this piece. 's a view of the underside. 's a side view. Look how the back is curved. We've never seen one like this in 30 plus years of dealing in antique furniture. Most of these Victorian pieces are very uncomfortable to sit in but this one is not.This chair will wiggle a little from side to side; an easy glue job when reupholstering. T is no forward/backward motion and could be used without regluing. The frame is in no danger of falling apart. 's a view from the back. While we had it on its back we took this shot of the base. Very nicely scrolled. 's another view of the arm and base area. As you're facing the chair, just under the arm on the left is this age crack. It isn't near a joint and it doesn't move so it's just a crack from age which is characteristic of solid wood furniture thats over 100 years old. And a couple of final views.
