This Antique armchair is FIERCELY FABULOUS!!! This is a phenomenal Antique armchair comprised of an exquisite mahogany frame bearing a fearless pair of hand carved figural lion heads down both arm fronts and epochal hand carved lion claw feet. It has a substantial size and wears a gorgeous golden yellow velvet fabric with gimp trim and a button tufted seat back and although we believe it has been reupholstered in its life…it was very early on. The fabric is definitely vintage and although it has been professionally cleaned, it has a few stubborn stains, and some may wish to reupholster. But think of the fabulous fabric options that would only complement the beauty of this masterpiece!! Limitless possibilities!!! And the velvet on the back is in awesome condition so maybe just upholster the seat in a great contrast fabric. The under seat is sprung with Jute webbing and has coil springs creating supreme comfort. It has an impressive throne-like presence and a Victorian style sure to make a bold statement in any room you choose. In a corner of your bedroom, in the study facing the fireplace, or in your sitting room next to a marvelous accent table. Lions have been associated with royalty and valor for centuries… A symbol of strength and courage… King of the jungle and held in awe by humankind. What an incredible aura to bring into your home! Do it, make it YOURS!!!

Late 1800’s Antique Victorian Mahogany Armchair Carved Figural Lion Heads & Claw Feet & Gold Velvet Upholstery
Fabulous Antique Victorian mahogany armchair with hand carved figural lion heads & claw feet. Vintage golden yellow velvet upholstery with gimp trim, sprung with Jute webbing, & coil springs. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that this is vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear even if it has been refinished or restored. Specifically, there is a bit of missing veneer on the tip of the left arm & small spots of missing carving, which we left alone, and the upholstery has been professionally cleaned; however, there are stubborn stains, and most will want to reupholster, we have priced accordingly. Please see photos and zoom in for details as they are part of the condition report. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, Late 1800’s.
