'Winter' Bath Chair

A British 1980's paper-twist bath chair, repainted in '1990 Natural' paint. The seat is re-upholstered and covered in 1990's 'winter' print. So that's UK 80's, 90's - got that?

Actually, this used to be a commode but I removed the potty and added a hardboard base, so now when you lift the seat - Voila - a place to store your plastic soldiers.

This chair can be yours for a bargain seventy five quid.

Balloon-back Chairs

A pair of mid 19th Century balloon-back side chairs, re-upholstered and covered in vintage Welsh wool blanket.

Ninety quid for the pair. Can't be bad.

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
