This is a lovely, very comfy and a bit unusual Pair of Victorian Spoon Back Parlour Armchairs: in your standard pair of Victorian Armchairs the Gentleman’s Chair has arms (usually closed), and the Ladies Chair does not. In this particular set both Gents and Ladies Armchairs have closed arms, which is most uncommon. The main difference between those two Chairs is the size: Gentleman’s one is the larger of the two.

The frame is Carved Mahogany, with terminations as scrolling curlicues. The chairs have a classic Spoon Back, Cabriole Legs and deep curves of the 1860-1880’s. They have been fully restored and reupholstered in Wellington by one of the most talented local restorers. We purchased this furniture not so long ago intending to use it in a small, family based hospitality project that unfortunately didn’t go ahead due to the COVID-19 impact on all hospitality businesses.

This set of Antique furniture is in a great condition for it's age, the upholstery is new, clean and tidy. The chairs were not used after the restoration. Due to both the quality of the craftsmanship and the nature of these items we firmly know that this set is of genuine Victorian origins. We like to research our items where we can, and have some experience.

Very impressive set of Antique furniture indeed. It is in a class of its own, and would grace anyone's home regardless of decor. You will not regret about this purchase.

The Coffee Table (or Tea Table) pictured on photos has been already sold but we have some other similar tables to offer if you wish to consider some addition to the set.
