The walnut scroll arms are supported scroll uprights on 'os de mouton' (mutton bone) stretcher. Exceptional original colour and patina. This armchair is sturdy and suitable for regular use.
Please note the color of the textile is warmer than in the flesh in the main image, the other images are more accurate
Condition: A light scattering of old worm marks and wear on walnut commensurate with age. Old nail marks from previous upholstery on the underside of the rails. 20th century pine blocks in each corner on the underside of the frame to ensure stability.
