An 18th Century Library Armchair

An early 18th century leather armchair, raised on boldly carved ball and claw feet with stylised acanthus leaves above, the apron carved with vitruvian scrolls, the armrest begins with floral carving flowing into feathered necks terminating in parakeet heads. The leather is later, probably late 19th century and I feel there may be a top rail under there, but I can’t bring myself to remove the leather, fabulous thing. English-Irish, circa 1750.

H:103 W:75 D;60 CM (Seat height 47 cm)

H:40.5 W:29.5 D:23.6 INCHES (Seat Height 18.5 inches)


circa 1750.

It's very simple, Drew buys what he likes.

He has been dealing in architectural salvage and antiques for 29 years working initially as a stained glass restorer and designer. A member of LAPADA, Drew has spent 23 years as an independent dealer working from his base in North Wales. His business is driven by passion, an innate knowledge of antiques and a fascination with mixing items from different periods which has earned him a loyal client base of private individuals, interior decorators as well as partnering the best in his field on global and UK based projects.

He combines his many business commitments with sourcing new stock from across the UK and regularly exhibits at major London antique fairs where his show-stopping stands continue to be a great success.

With a focus on the aesthetic, Drew effortlessly mixes styles and eras creating his on-going collection which is showcased on our website.
