Sheraton Revival Edwardian Mahogany Elbow Chair c1905
The chair is in excellent condition commensurate with age – excepting upholstery. All solid mahogany frames are sound and all joints solid. The chair retains its original finish. Current upholstery on its drop-in seat is serviceable but would benefit from being re-upholstered. We offer the option to purchase the chair as it is or for a small additional cost, we can re-upholster its seat in your choice of fabric. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
