Used as a fireside chair, this innovative fauteuil was the fore-runner of modern recliners. On a beautifully turned walnut carcass, featuring vase and ring stretchers, this antique French chair features hand forged iron arm extensions, probably used to support a tray, and an adjustable back with long iron hook-and-slot adjustments. It has been recently reupholstered.
