Product Description

 

Antique Edwardian Mahogany Upholstered Tub Chair.

A comfortable but timeless tub chair from a renown maker.

We are delighted to offer for sale this absolutely amazing condition Edwardian (circa 1900) Tub chair on Mahogany legs in a timeless style. This stunning chair features traditional single colour floral figured Moquette Material which is original to the piece and has not ever been re-upholstered. This material is in truly amazing virtually unmarked condition regardless of the fact that it is over 100 years old and is complete with its original cording and braid to match. We have professionally wet cleaned the material and replaced the front braid to ensure it is in the nicest condition possible and ready for its new home. The chair has an elegant tub shape complete with a polished Mahogany front rail which joins 2 finely shaped block square tapering legs in the Edwardian style. This chair also features its original glossy french polished finish to the legs with the idillic lightly faded Mahogany Colour which we have just cleaned and waxed to enhance.

This usable antique chair is structurally solid, in good order with no loose joints. The chair is from a smoke and pet free home. Material and sprung seated inner padding is in very good condition with no clunking and the chair is very comfortable to sit in.

Although it would be a shame to reupholster, the chair could be re upholstered to your taste. We would be able to quote for re-upholstering this chair for you if you enquire.

About Maple & Co.

Maple and Co was one the largest and most successful British furniture retailers and cabinet makers in the Late 19th Century, Victorian and Edwardian periods. They were well known for fine quality, craftsmanship and were specialists in copying old designs but bringing them up to date to the more modern trends. They produced many quality pieces of antique furniture in designs such as Hepplewhite and Chippendale but also were well known for their quality Arts & Crafts Furniture.

Maple & Co was first established by John Maple, a shopkeeper in Surrey, who later opened a furniture shop in Tottenham Court Road. It was his son, John Maple, who pushed Maples & Co to be such a huge success. With his skills in business, by the 1880s they were the largest furniture store in the world as they exported their fine antique furniture to many different countries and were well known throughout the interiors world. During the late 19th and early 20th Century they had showrooms and workshops in London, Paris and Buenos Aires.

In the late 1940s, after the World War, Maple & Co started to decline in sales due to high manufacturing costs and peoples tastes changed from the traditional look to more rounded Art Deco designs. They were a little slow in the uptake of these new fashionable, fast manufactured and cheap designs so their business rapidly went into decline. They eventually joined with Waring & Gillow to become Maple, Waring & Gillow.

Please note; this item is in very good condition for its age but does have signs of wear and tear, however, we feel that these points are which adds to part of its charm and character with it being antique.
