Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this exquisite pair of Victorian circa 1860 English country house armchairs with hand carved owl head arms and early velvet fantasy creature upholstery. These are pretty much the most wonderful pair of armchairs I have ever seen.They are Victorian of course with hand carved oak Owl pillared arms, the front feet are carved in the form of owls feet, you then have a floral vine which leads up the owls breast feathers and finish with charming owls heads that have rather curious expressions. The upholstery is early velvet which depicts unicorns, some kind of reindeer and other animals around a mythical tree, it is very English country house fine. The cushions are fully upholstered on both sides so if the worst should happen and you stain one side you can simply flip them over. They are overstuffed feather filled and very comfortable indeed. Condition wise one chairs upholstery has heavily faded, the other slightly faded, it all adds to the period look and feel, the timber has all been deep cleaned hand condition waxed and hand polished. Seat height:- 51.5cm.
