A good quality early 19th century simulated rosewood Regency period Library Armchair.

Having elegant scrolling arms over x-framed end supports with carved decoration, ormolu mounts and replaced brass castors.

This elegant design of chair is typical regency design and offers great comfort in combination with a real elegance and classy look.

That is a combination which can be hard to find during regency times, as often there is a trade off between comfort and style.

It is in excellent condition and has been recently reupholstered. The replaced brass castors are in the identical style to what the original would have been.

It is constructed from 'simulated rosewood' which could also be described as 'faux rosewood'. 

Which means that it is actually beech, or a similar wood, which was stained at the point of construction to make it look like the item has been constructed from the hugely more expensive solid rosewood.

This is a fairly common technique of the time.

Circa 1825.

Height - 37in.
Width - 23in.
Depth - 34in.

Seat Height - 18in.
