This chair is an absolute treasure! Its graceful lyre-back design and rich chocolate stain are as classic and traditional as side chairs get. The hand-carved, delicately curved seat pad indicates that great care was taken in the construction of this chair, which the straw stuffing suggests happened in the late 1800s. And hiding underneath the burgundy needlepoint upholstery was the original black-and-gold brocade silk fabric! The upholstery was freshened with a crisp black ticking stripe that ushers this elder statesman into the twenty-first century. It is the perfect accent piece for a den, office, or bedroom, and would be an especially fitting gift for the music lover in your life!
Late 1800s Lyre-Back Chair with Straw Stuffing
The origin and exact age of this chair are unknown, but the construction and style indicate that it dates to the late 1800s. It was purchased from an estate sale in Sterling Heights; the seller's late father was an antiques dealer.
