Authentic Antique French 19thC Balloon Back Armchair. Acquired in France this month, a well proportioned, generous/roomy & very comfortable armchair, it is c1880 in date, fine quality & well made, the frame is hardwood, consequently it is a weighty piece. An unusual design, has the more rare curvaceous back rest & as seen, it has, historically been professionally & sympathetically reupholstered & a pleated skirt included, originally these armchairs had a fringe skirt. It is a firm seat & very comfortable. The springs to the seat & webbing in perfect order.
Needs re-upholstery in my opinion, see small tear to seat, would look amazing when completed. Legs are ebonised, this is the original finish, would originally have had casters to the feet.Reply as soon as possible. The item "Authentic Antique French 19thC Ballon Back Armchair.
