Cockfighting Chair c.1890

We are proud to offer a genuine example of a leather and mahogany worn character filled example of a cockfighting chair. Detailed with brass studs, a naturally aged leather pinned surface and carved mahogany structure with brass feet. This seat has had years of use which gives it its macabre look. A wonderful decorative example with a lovely faded colour. An easily placed piece of furniture that would bring lots of macabre character to any internal space.
Size in inches: H 29” x W 20” x D 27”
Origin: English
Period: 1890
Material: Mahogany, brass, and leather
Condition: These items are completely solid in structure and form if not a bit worn due to its age and natural use. The leather surface is a bit tatty and worn as shown, the brass studs are all present and there are no loose sections. The wooden legs are worn and scuffed in places as you may expect, one of the legs has an aged repair at the joining section to the main seat. This break is an old fix and is still very secure and firm. Close up photos have been supplied to illustrate these points so please observe carefully and propose questions to us if needed.
