Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this exceptionally rare pair of Victorian Chesterfield library armchairs with Libertys of London style Art Nouveau carved frames. What a pair of chairs!!! I have never seen another like them with the Libertys Art Nouveau frames before. I collect the rare Archibald Knox sterling silver that he made for Libertys towards the end of the Victorian era and these chairs just scream that they came from the same workshop. The leather upholstery is nicely faded, its chesterfield buttoned to the back and base, the leather is fully aniline natural cattle hide, the frames are solid oak, the castors are original brass and porcelain, these chairs are a tour de force of style, design and craftsmanship.
They are of course library reading armchairs, they have a good straight back, oversized arms and a coil sprung seat platform. We have cleaned waxed and polished them from top to bottom, they will have normal age and use related patina marks here and there. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.Royal House Antiques is a privately owned family ran business founded in Wimbledon SW19 and now based in Pulborough RH20.
