19thC Ebonised Napoleon III French Armchair

The nineteenth century Napoleon III period armchair, in an old fawn draylon, ready for reupholstery, having turned ebonised front legs to slender swept backs each with the original castors, the frame with shaped arms and a scrolled back, the whole surviving from the latter half of nineteenth century France.

The chair is in very original condition, solid and stable and ready for a fabric of your choosing which we are able to administer for you at cost via our upholstery. One of the rear legs appears to be in oak rather than being ebonised so is likely a later replacement. The castors are original but two of them are very worn.

A particularly nice example with the scrolled back, and oh so very French.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
