Can anyone help with identifying this chair please...or suggestions about where I might get some info ?. Been in the family home for 60-ish years.
Bring a photo to your local antique dealer or furniture auction house.
I suspect it may be an office chair but can’t tell if it’s too low for a desk.
Could it have been adapted at some stage. Again difficult to tell but wood on arms and back seem different to legs.
Or it could have been a special order, made to someone’s specifications.
It is a lovely piece of furniture.
HI - Its a Victorian mahogany library (or reading) chair.
Usually dating to the mid 19th C , legs suggest a bit later in the date bracket, maybe 1870-90 I'd say.
That type of staining on the mahogany is also corresponding to that kind of date.
Made very well - will be around for another century or more . The seat is pretty much the only thing that will need mending as time goes by.
The seat stuffing or strap-work supports underneath will wear over time, easily mended.
Enjoy it ! lovely thing
