This beautiful armchair has been restored and re-upholstered. The castors are original. A really classy piece of furniture - a perfect Gentleman's Armchair. Not sure of the date of the piece, although was listed as Victorian, I have tried to do some research but can't find anything similar - all other examples of open back armchairs are very ornate french pieces. The chair was originally finished in leather but this was unfortunately beyond repair. I hope you love the finished piece as much as I do.
