Description
A wonderful and rare 19th Century mahogany hall porters chair upholstered in leather. English circa 1870. Always a rare item to find and especially of this unique design. Elegantly constructed in the Georgian manner with wide proportions. The mahogany timbered C scroll framed hood having serpentine sides and out swept mahogany fronted arms. Retaining what looks to be a very old, possibly original leather and individual brass studwork, the back having shallow buttons over a sprung seat, raised on tapering legs and brass castors to the front with swept legs to the rear. The leather is in excellent condition having retained a wonderful faded colour and depth. This chair would have been used at the entrance of a large country house / estate, designed to envelop the porter / gatekeeper to keep them warm as there were often cold breezes near the front doors, where he could be sat for long periods of time. Seat Height 17 inches - 43cm
