Wing-back Armchair in Welsh Wool

An 1891 wing-back armchair reupholstered in Melin Tregwynt Mondo Sage doublecloth.

This armchair wasn't looking too great when it came into the workshop.

It came from a stately home in Scotland and was manufactured by a company called Morison & Co in Edinburgh in 1891.

I know it was 1891 because there's an inscription in pencil on an inner rail that reads "John Ferguson, Upholsterer, 1891". 

It's a very high quality piece of furniture and had to be reupholstered in the traditional way.

This was a commission.

  1. That looks lovely. And I love the Melin Tregwynt designs - I have a blanket by them
