 Edwardian Ladies Chair c.1910
 Contact: Fairmarket 
December 9, 2013

Rather sweet and delicate Edwardian chair, fully restored, re-glued, re-webbed and seat re-covered in full grain leather. I believe it was actually made in New Zealand as it has a slightly rustic finish and construction in mixed woods (beech maybe) and originally had a very dark and thick shellac coating to conceal differences in the wood

Generally, these chairs didn’t survive well due to their flimsy construction and propensity for borer, which has now been treated. It has taken me 30 years to get around to restoring this one, while another similar one I had simply disintergrated

Nevertheless, it is pretty to look at and is probably best used in a bedroom as someting to put clothes on rather than everyday seating in the hallway of lounge. It certainly isn’t a suitable seat for a large person

Price: (NZD) $1,450.00
