Antique Early American Armchair Upholstered in Hessian Cloth

SOLD

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.

Empire Work Table Made In New England | Circa 1840s

19TH CENTURY EMPIRE WORK TABLE
MADE IN NEW ENGLAND
Circa 1840s
Lovely turned legs in a spooled style
Excellent Dovetailing!
Exceptional Patina!
 
A fantastic example of country American Empire.  It’s all original, with some of the green paint still visible, especially around the drawer.  The entire piece has received a coat of wax to bring out the depth of the original finish.  The base and legs appear to have once been painted in a period green, which must have been semi-removed long ago.  It was an estate find from a farmhouse, with many items having been untouched for a very longtime.  The wear and patina are so attractive and give testament to the age of this piece.
In very solid condition, with nicely working hinges and smooth gliding runners.  The table is mainly made of mahogany, with drawer bottom, back and sides of pine.  All dovetails are strong, within the drawer.
Local pickup would be desired.  Delivery can be arranged throughout New England, Boston and New York City. 
‘White glove’ shipping available.
