An English bobbin slipper chair from the late 19th century with dark patina, new upholstery and casters. Born in England during the third quarter of the 19th century, this charming slipper chair features a slightly slanted back, adorned with bobbin supports, flowing delicately into the hind saber legs. The rectangular seat has been newly covered with a simple muslin, allowing the chair to reveal the beauty of its structure and patina. The four legs, (the front ones being bobbin legs) are resting on brass casters allowing the chair to be moved easily. For centuries, slipper chairs were used in bedrooms to help ladies get dressed. With its lovely silhouette and dark patina, this English slipper chair circa 1870 will look wonderful in any home, particularly in a bedroom.
