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.

An exceptionally well made swiveling office chair by Sikes of Philadelphia. The company was known for quality and innovative designs. The wood is in fantastic condition, the mechanicals work very well and the ebony leather is in brilliant condition. The leather was recently conditioned/cleaned and is free of any tears or damage. The leather has a lovely worn patina, with some light cracking, which adds to it’s charm. The internal cushioning is in fantastic condition.
It’s a very comfortable desk chair. The back support is adjustable and allows you to recline slightly, determined by how much pressure you use, while leaning back. The wood wheels are intact and roll nicely.
The Sikes company information is available online, if you would like to know more about the history. The chair was made during a short period of time, while the Sikes company briefly located to Philadelphia, before returning their factory to New York State. The company was founded in 1859.

Offering a set of four handmade Hitchcock chairs. Circa 1820-1840. They have a nice patina, with an old shellac finish present. The chairs recently received a coat of very fine museum quality English wax. All the joints are very stable and the chairs feel very solid. There are nice details of a skilled craftsman, with carving marks and nicely turned legs.
Most Hitchcock chairs are painted black, but these happened to be finished Yellow Pine & hardwood. Under one of the chairs, there is very faint painted lettering, showing to whom the chairs were made. I haven’t been able to make out the entire name. The chairs came from a farmhouse in Western Massachusetts and were likely made locally, with some parts potentially from the Hitchcock Co. In 1818, the Hitchcock company started in the business of selling chair parts.
Please be in contact for shipping and handling charges. They could ship UPS, with two chairs to a box. Freight is another option. International shipping can be arranged.
Offering a lovely early 20th century armchair in an earlier style. It has been upholstered in natural Hessian Cloth. The chair frame is very solid and displays desirable age and wear to the wood. The finish is original, with a recent fine English wax coating added. There is a very small piece of missing wood on the bottom of the left front leg, which is to be expected of an antique chair. I’m not 100% which type of wood the chair was constructed from. It’s certainly very hard!
The chair has very simple lines and a natural look, which make it versatile. It’s very wide and comfortable. The chair would go brilliantly next to the rustic 1840’s Empire Worktable, which I also have listed.
This item is offered for local collection. It’s also offered for shipment by UPS or freight service. It can be delivered throughout New England and the New York City area.
Please be in contact for shipping and handling charges, which will obviously vary by delivery method.
