Description: One of the most extraordinary Victorian walnut armchairs we have ever offered for sale. There are three fully carved birds and an open carved wreath in the crest. The sides are naturally carved branchs. The back and seat have spectacular orginal needlepoint upholstery with birds and trees. The birds actually have small beads for the eyes. The colors are rich and this chair was obviously extremely valued and cared for over the last 140 years. The back is beautifully framed with a burled panel. The skirt has burl and carving. The front legs are fluted and tapered. All the feet end in original brass castors. A unique and gorgeous chair - a piece of art!
