Antique 19th Century Renaissance Revival (1885-95) Victorian Rosewood Parlor or Bedroom Chair with Hand-Carved Accents From Neville Plantation
This wonderful plantation estate piece is an all-original Rosewood parlor or bedroom armchair. The piece is 100% authentic, with its original hand-carved frame and original carved rose accents -- ALL complete and right AND with ORIGINAL CASTERS. The hand carving is understated but lovely. It comes from a Neville Plantation estate, where it had been stored for many decades and "liberated" after I bought the old homesite and surrounding acreage in the 1990's. It is unmarked but dates well before the turn of the 20th Century -- probably during the Renaissance Revival/Victorian Periods -- around 1885-95. The construction is very solid. This is NOT a cheap "knock-off" and acquired some reupholstering along its journey -- done beautifully. Although it shows the years a bit, NO tears or rips.
SALE PRICE: $500
The photos are provided to demonstrate the condition of this old armchair. It has the marks of service BUT is still absolutely SOLID IN EVERY RESPECT and the old reupholstering was accomplished professionally many years ago and remains serviceable and attractive, but will likely need some attention in its next life. We have cleaned the chair, dusted it off but have not otherwise tried to clean it.
MEASUREMENTS and DETAILS: 45" tall, 28 1/2" wide front seat area and 24" deep.
