Horseshoe-back Ladies' Chair

Early 19th Century Ladies' Chair with horseshoe back in ornate mahogany, covered in Sanderson 'Ink' velvet.

When I opened this up the rails were so shot-through with the last upholsterer's staples that they pretty much fell apart so I had to 'do a job' on this chair and make modifications to the arms, legs and back to make it work.

This took me fifty hours to complete. Yes fifty. In future I may choose to leave these well alone.
This was a commission
