Rare 19thC Antique French Button Back Armchair - Napoleon III. c1860.


This is an unusual & fine example of a mid- late 19thC French Napoleon III armchair, we have not seen similar curved arm & leg features in years.


It is an attic find from Limoges, retains the original upholstery, We were going to remove the velour & needlework material & photograph it with the calico but decided to leave it as is in the end to maintain originality.


Structurally it's in good order, needs the casters removing or replacing as the wheels are worn, French wheels are mainly horn or wood & wear flat over the decades.


It is a rather curvaceous chair, lots of shape, it's very French & has lots of decorative features. It will look amazing re-upholstered or simply as is, wonderfully worn.


Both the seat & back are buttoned.
