This is a rare antique 19thC ships chair, with original swivel base.

It would have been a salon chair. Small brass plate on the back says '1120'

Wood is mahogany

Cast iron base with four legs and lower cross stretcher.

Five substantial spindles support the 'Horseshoe' back and arms.

* We also have a set of six matching 19thC ships dining chairs, that are going to be sold after doing a bit of work to them. It's extremely rare on the international market to find matching ships chairs. They're shown in the last pics, as they also would work well with this chair if someone wanted a set of 8 ships dining chairs...There's also quite a few other unusual maritime pieces of furniture & fittings here that are going to be sold...*

[PLEASE NOTE SEAT IS GETTING RE-UPHOLSTERED IN AN ANTIQUE RED VELVET THIS WEEK - if you're seriously interested & want leather or some other colour, please speak up :) ]
