Abbey Ward, W Mids

Wimbledon-Furniture Wimbledon-Furniture is delighted to offer for auction this stunning andvery rare circa 1810-1820 Regency Turkey work pair of armchairs original periodupholstery Please note the delivery fee listed isjust a guide, it covers within the M25 only, for an accurate quote please sendme your postcode This piece is part of a suite, I have the matching daybed listed under myother items A very rare well made and decorative pair of chairs, turkeywork is a form of knotted embroidery practiced in England from the16th century to the mid-18th century, but especially in the 17th century. Usedfor upholstery and table covers, it was worked in imitation of Turkish carpets,which are known from paintings to have been imported to England from the 16thcentury. The designs were usually of geometrically stylized flowers. A documentfrom the reign of William III (1689–1702) gives the number of Turkey-workchairs made per annum as 60,000. Because so few examples have survived inEngland, while examples have been found abroad for example, in Italy it may bededuced that Turkey work was an export item. As you can see the upholstery is period anddistressed, it can be restored as there is no missing fabric just straight linesplits and wear areas, I have a pair of cushions which can be used for donorfabric if needed One armchair is mostly stable and solid and will need limitedframe work, the other chair needs the springs webbing on the base, a verysimple job, the frame will need to be secured as it has play The model of the seat itself is absolutely sublime, itis very very rare to find a pair of armchairs from this period and of these dimensionsas well. If the upholstery’s wasn’t so rare I would strip it all off andupholster them in leather then have them hand dyed, you would then have an epicpair of chairs Dimensions Height:- 66cm Width:- 178.5cm Depth:- 91cm Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you wouldlike any additional or specific measurements please ask Any questions please feel free to ask before you bid DELIVERY OR COLLECTION This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehousesSW19-3BE, we can have it delivered nationwide to include Scotland Wales andIreland.
