Mahogany and leather large childs armchair
A good quality mahogany and leather large childs armchair, possibly by C & R Light - ADDITIONAL IMAGES CAN BE VIEWED BELOW:
This chair consists of a finely carved top rail with central ebonised finial with carved scroll design with foliage and flower decoration as well as scallop shell and other carving.
The chair uprights lead down to the arms which have padded armrests with turned supports.
The back and seat are upholstered in original brown leather fixed with dome studs. The leather does have a worn appearance but I feel this adds to the character of the piece.
The front legs are turned and the back legs are of splay design terminating with brass and porcelain castors.
This design of chair was typically produced by C & R Light, one of the larger wholesale furniture makers in London in the late 19thc - early 20thc. They were based in Curtain Road, Shoreditch & this area was the hub of the International furniture trade at this time.
This piece is of stable construction and could be used as it is or could also be re-upholstered by the purchaser.
