This week we offer your choice of fine upholstered armchairs, American and English. Both are in mahogany and of the late 18th century.

The first is English in the Chippendale form full of exciting details seldom to be found elsewhere. Below the serpentine crest, the arms form a stylish s-curve over an arm support with unusual moldings. The style on the square tapering legs is likewise fitted with carved moldings and is above block feet on antique casters. All is crowned with a fresh damask covered in a bold period style soft red. (Fabric cuttings available). A top quality chair in polished old finish, this could be the accent piece for your living room or study.
