Edwardian Bergere Chair with Rams head and Hoof Feet - We Have 2
Just wonderful with bags of charm and appeal these chairs are just delightful and survive in cracking order.
The late Edwardian period and a little beyond saw makers play around and craft some fun and whimsical features into furniture and these chairs with their carved rams heads and front hoofed feet, fit the bill perfectly.
They are of a good form - somewhat country house in style and would have been an expensive purchase in the day with double caning to the sides, sprung seats and tufted feather filled cushions.
Workshop report - The chairs survive in great historic order, the frames are appropriately marked and worn in the right places, the boucle mustard coloured fabric with its tufted seams is not overly worn and a little age faded in places. The seats are firm enough and as mentioned the frames are tight, firm with no movement or repairs. The canework has no holes or breaks. We would say a fine looking chair in good historic order – no bad odours either.
Price is for one chair delivered not the pair – we have a matching 2 seater sofa if you care to purchase a set.
Dimensions - Overall: Height 80/71cm (With/Without Cushion x Width 70cm x Depth 83cm
Dimensions - Specifically the Seat: Height 38cm x Width 56cm x Depth 65/54cm (With/Without Cushion)
