Antique 19th Century Rosewood Chair With Ivory Inlay

SOLD

Offering a 19th century Asian hand carved rosewood and burled exotic wood chair. The construction certainly points to the mid 19th century, as the chair was constructed with wooden pegs, noticeable on the joining of the arms and back. There are nails, which were likely added when the chair was fitted with a replacement caned seat. The nails appear to be of early 20th century vintage. Given it’s age, there are a couple splits in the wood, which do not impact it’s function. A lovely chair with plenty of antique charm. Strong and complete!The Ivory and exotic wood inlays are finely detailed and show a figure climbing a tree limb. There appears to be an older repair to the head of the figure, which isn’t Ivory, but is very presentable and blends in rather well. One small area of a tree branch detail also appears to have an older repair present.The overall shape and fine hand-carved details are unique and very beautiful. It would certainly give a warm handmade antique presence to any decor. A rare 19th century piece of Chinese furniture. It has a bespoke feel. It’s a comfortable chair to sit in, but is most definitely a decorative piece and mean’t to be admired.

A Neoclassical Edwardian English Oak Chair, Hand Carved and Leather Details, Solid Condition

SOLD

A handmade English Oak Neoclassical chair from the Edwardian Period. The hand-carved details are fantastic. The seating surface and seat back, have a Neoclassical styled figure embossed into the leather. There is a small torn area in the leather seating surface, which doesn’t affect the integrity of the chair. You’ll notice, the chair legs are slightly irregular and signs of hand construction are present. The Shellac finish appears to be old, but in fine condition.

With the slight irregularities in the legs and bracing, the chair is very solid and rather smart looking. A full sized adult can comfortably sit in this chair.

I could see the chair used for an entry hall or placed next to a small table. It has a lot of character and the details are interesting to look at.
