This lovely side chair is upholstered in a gorgeous topiary design tapestry. The arms and legs are very stylish at this period. It has an little empire twist to the arms. A very delicate chair but sturdy. This chair came from a local Raleigh estate and has been lovingly cared for through the years. The wood is walnut. All of the nail heads are intact and the upholstery is clean although it is old.
