William IV Mahogany Library Bergère with Acanthus Carved Showframe c.1830
A very handsome Gentleman's button back library Bergère chair with solid carved mahogany show frame and finely turned front legs terminating in original brass casters. Upholstered in a deep red velvet fabric in good condition with no tears or damage or significant marks. The solid mahogany top rail beautifully shaped and carved at the terminals with beautifully detailed fleur de lis.
Very comfortable with a well padded seat and good rake to the back. There is a small Victorian iron bracket added to the top of one rear leg, as shown in the photographs. This appears to be an added support rather than a braced repair as there is no evidence of any breaks to the leg and the bracket is very difficult to notice. No weakness in the joints of the chair, solid and heavy and beautifully elegant.
29 inches wide, 32 inches deep and 36 inches high.
The seat is 17.5 inches wide, 21 inches deep and 15 inches from the floor.
For metric please multiply by 2.5

About me and my promise to you:
I have always had a passion for antiques and like many collectors I have spent every spare moment rummaging around antique shops, house sales and auctions.
Four years ago I decided to make my passion my full time profession and since then I have worked alongside a qualified antiques dealer who is the third generation of her family to be ‘in the trade’.
I want to earn repeat business from happy customers so am determined to keep my prices very low, to offer excellent value, and to send you really lovely items which are fairly and correctly described and fit for purpose.
I am not trying to make my fortune - just hoping to earn a small living wage and to stay working in the field I have chosen and love.
If I do not have the right piece in my stock for you, do please let me know if you what you are looking for and I will try to find it for you at a reasonable price and on a no obligation basis.
Any questions at all or if you would like to view my stock in Sussex, please do call me on 07407 633 233
