Wimbledon-Furniture is delighted to offer for auction this absolutely stunning fully restored hand dyed cigar brown leather period Regency Mahogany Chesterfield Porters armchair attributed to Gillows 

Please note the delivery fee listed is just a guide, it covers within the M25 only, for an accurate quote please send me your postcode

There are around 50-100 high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page

A very good looking and classically designed Regency piece, if you google Regency Gillows armchair you will see this exact piece, its listed “attributed to” because we can’t find the stamp without removing the entire upholstery, that said allot of their pieces weren’t stamped because they were so clearly made by them. The look and feel is absolutely timeless, this chair looks wonderful in any setting

The timber is fruitwood which has been painted to reflect Rosewood, its been expertly executed and only a trained eye can see the finish is painted, this was clearly a customer commission and not an uncommon practice in the Regency to Victorian era. The ends of the arms are finished with bronze floral mounts. I have removed the base cover of the chair so you can see its period and  has been hand cut, we will of course hand nail tack a hessian base cover back in place prior to dispatch  

The chair has been fully restored to include being hand dyed this lovely deep whisky brown colour, the hide has natural imperfections and marks from honest use and fair ware
