Victorian arm chairs, matching pair of ladies and gentlemans, circa 8150 - 1860, hand carved solid walnut with original finish. Each chair still has four original wood casters. Chairs are structurally sound and suitable for sitting. They were reupholstered 40 years ago in a velvet blend. Light green in color with matching gimp along the edges.
The gentleman's chair is 36" tall, 27" wide across the front, the seat is 24" deep, with solid carving at the knee of the cabriole legs and arm. This style chair was also referred to as arm chair because of the padded arm rest feature. The upholstery is in very good condition, no rips, tears or worn spots. A few minor spots that could be easily cleaned.
The ladies chair is 35 1/2" tall, 24" wide across the front, the seat is 22" deep. The ladies chair has a low aproned seat, with shorter cabriole legs than the man's chair. The purpose of this design was to accommodate the ladies attire. The upholstery is in very good condition, no rips or tear or worn spots. A few minor spots that could easily be cleaned.
The oval cameo backs on both chairs are perfect. Both chairs have finger grooving on the wood frame. There are a few minor shrinkage cracks at the joint of the ladies chair. The chair is structurally sound, this is just something that happens with age. Chairs are too large to ship via UPS. They must either be picked up in Weston Vermont ( south central part of the state in ski country) or we can assist with commercial carrier. Weston is about 4 hours from Boston or New York. A matched pair are very hard to find and then in excellent condition even more difficult to locate. See photos.
