A superbly carved and untouched Louis Philippe armchair. Circa 1840.

This statement piece boasts its original black leather upholstery and a very desirable exposed walnut frame. The armrests are padded, and the chair’s unusual ‘ears’, designed to protect the occupiers face from the fire, make an ideal headrest. This is a proper Gentleman’s armchair designed for lounging in comfort.

The original leather has worn in some places, but we believe it would be sacrilegious to tamper with this piece’s original upholstery. Almost all of the original tacks are intact, and those missing have been replaced. There are some marks to the walnut frame consistent with age and use, and it has been treated for woodworm.
