Wonderful Victorian Velvet Covered Throne Savonarola Chair
Great looking chair from a private collection and possibly by London firm White Allom and Company, founded by Sir Charles Allom in 1902 and with offices at 29-30 Old Burlington Street in Mayfair. The firm specialised in historic interior decoration furniture which would tip this chair into the Edwardian period. The X-shape of the legs is reminiscent of folding stools of the Tudor period. In the seventeenth century, the X-shape remained a decorative feature, and the arms and back were added for comfort.
This one survives in rather good original condition with wear in the right places and sits firm with no repairs, wobbles or faults apart from historic ones to the age faded and worn velvet fabric and fringe. Sits well, dry and smells fine.
A perfect statement piece for a commercial or home setting.
