We are delighted to offer for auction this lovely pair of original 1930’s Hillcrest Gainsborough carver armchairs  

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

These are the “piece de resistance” of Gainsborough chairs, they are the one and only, the original Hillcrest, these are very rare to find, the reason I know they were made by Hillcrest is I have the matching captains chair, the frames are solid light mahogany, these are some of the best examples you will ever see of this type of chair as they are totally original 

The leather is thick hand dyed solid brown, it has some lightening to the arm ends as you would expect and normal leather cracking 

I have as mentioned the matching captains office chair listed under my other items which has brass castors, Lion cast metal feet and the double spring tension adjuster
