Victorian Rosewood Ladies Slipper Chair


Victorian Ladies Slipper Chair 

19th Century Ladies Chair in Rosewood. Rosewood is special and characterised by dramatic changes to the colour and grain. It is therefore very distinct and sought after – it was given most protected status in 1992 and banned from export.

This stunning piece has carved cabriole front legs, splayed rear ones and sweeping side rails that end in a scroll. The design is incredibly comfortable and very elegant. We decided to combine Spanish Alhambra velvet with red velvet by Linwood making it a striking piece. Whilst respecting the traditional floral motifs originally used on these chairs it adds a contemporary twist. It was incredibly difficult to capture the true colour of the seat. It is marginally lighter than the photos show and I would describe it as cherry red.

The chair has been fully restored using traditional techniques and materials and has sprung seat and it stands on original brass castors.

We would be delighted if you wish to visit Salisbury to view any item before buying to enable you to appreciate the quality of our work. The only concession we make to traditional methods is use of a staple gun which is far kinder to old furniture frames than tacks.

Returns can only be accepted within 7 days if there is a fault with the restoration. Please remember our pieces are old and will have the honourable scars of time. This is part of their charm!
