Early 19th century antique library chair standing on slender tall turned legs with rope twist decoration. This chair was made before the invention of coil springs (first patent 1829) and it has been reupholstered in our own workshops using the correct two stage hand stitched horsehair filling in the correct manner for that period. It was the addition of coil springs to upholstery of the later Victorian period which led to the box section becoming larger and the legs shortening to make room for the springs. This is one of the reasons why pre-Victorian upholstery looks more elegant than later pieces.
