This antique Victorian leather armchair is a stunning piece of furniture & is really comfortable. It's been re-upholstered, hand coloured & antiqued, so as you can see is full of character. I would date this armchair to around the 1840-60 period. It has an iron frame, mahogany feet & original porcelain casters. It has really generous proportions & is really begging to be sat in. I can't see any makers marks, but it has all the qualities of a 'Howard' armchair.
Fine quality hand carved antique bergere suite which consists of a 3 seater sofa & 2 matching armchairs. It's solid walnut & probably dates from around the 1890-1900 period. I think this suite is Swedish. Obviously it needs re-upholstering, which I can arrange or sell as is. The frame is sound & has had a polish. The pair of armchairs have some can damage & are being sent away to be repair or replaced where necessary. Right now I'm selling it for £1500 as is. The cost of the caning will go on top of that price. I don't know how much yet, but new panels can cost in the region of £100- £125 & then they need to be stained to match. It's the sides that are damaged. There are four side panels, but I don't think it's all of them. For re-upholstery it will all need to be re-sprung or re-webbed, plus new feather cushions, so it could cost in the region of £800-£1000 for a top job with my upholsterer. There is also a matching marble top coffee table which is shown in the 1st image & also in 'coffee tables' on the site. This suite would definitely be worth recovering, because it's one of the best I've seen & not only would look great, but would also be very comfortable because of it's generous proportions. So, it's £1500+vat now or about £2000 with all the caning done or In the region of £3000 plus fabric of your choice re-upholstered.
Very stylish pair of original Swedish Art Deco Satinbirch armchairs in excellent condition, dating from around the 1930-50's period. Like all these chairs I bring over from Sweden, they have been French polished & completely re-upholstered, so they will be comfortable. The Satinbirch has a lovely mellow colour, with that typical silky finish. Although these chairs aren't that large, they still have wide enough seats, because the arms are slim. They will look great in modern or traditional room settings.
Antique Victorian walnut dining table with a burr walnut oval tilt top on a beautifully detailed base. This table is very fine quality & in excellent original condition, with no splits or warps. It's definitely one of the finest examples I've had. Please enlarge all the images to see the fine details, particularly the tight burr walnut & the carved base. The base is solid walnut, with four outside turned supports & a fabulous finial in the centre. There are casters under the feet. The top is cross banded outside of the burr walnut. The top section can be taken off the base quite simply for easy transportation. I would date this to around the 1850-60's period.
