This listing is for a Late 19th Century Georgian Revival Tapestry Upholstered Arm Chair. It is a gorgeous example of an earlier time, with a wonderful hand embroidered original tapestry upholstery of an 18th Century scene of Royalty. It is quite unusual to find embroidered upholstery that has been as well preserved as this in revived examples, and it brings an incredible amount of life to the chair. The arms are long and molded, with a soft cabriole form curving into intensely carved hand rests. Similarly molded arm supports rise to lock the arms in place, each arm flanking a broad tapestry upholstered seat of animal life amongst foliate designs. The chair rests over cabriole legs, carved at the knees and terminating in curled Georgian toes.
This is a wonderful decorator find, not a collector example, but nonetheless a beautiful addition to any formal room. With stunning hand embroidery and fine carvings, this chair is a conversation piece and a highlighting strikepoint.
28" wide x 26 1/2" deep x 37 7/8" high; seat is 19 1/4" over the ground
