Cracking 1950s Vintage Mid Century Black Leather Howard Keith Wingback Chair

A rare find indeed, especially in black leather which is by far the best colour and finish for this chair. Howard Keith produced some great looking chairs and this model is up there with the best. We have had Mark, our upholsterer make a new seat cushion with a rather good period boucle in black.

Presented in the favoured black leather and as mentioned untouched and not messed with. It's the shape and form that's so attractive - the large wings are just wonderful, the hard shape to the arms, the six button back and the fact that it sits low to the ground seems to really set it off well. Not large either.

Condition wise it's pretty much what you see is what you get… expect genuine day to day wear, fraying to the leather on its edges etc – this is not new!
A wonderful piece of British furniture C1950

The collaboration of successful Interior Designer Martina Reitbauer and Ardent Gatherer Wayne Lawless brings to you an exciting and ever evolving selection of items for your home which do not have the constraints of a particular era, no onus on any particular style or a brand agenda to respect.

We take pleasure in gathering pieces from country houses, time-worn factories and auctions travelling extensively to seek out the appealing.
