Hi Delia:
Happy Fourth of July! I wish people would stop setting of their annoying fireworks.
OMG. You made me laugh about the shawl. I thought of just cutting it off completely, but I decided to leave it in case someone likes cherubs.
The tweed fabric on the arm or backrests looks like it is original or at least older than the cherub material. I think the previous owner could not bring themselves to remove the tweed, so they made a little shawl for the arms or whatever you call that part of the chair that intersects at the spine. I just did ot have the heart to separate it, yet. It is really a sturdy and confortable chair. It could be wonderfully reupholstered by someone and maybe some attention to the wood would be helpful. Maybe fringeless, too.

Right?! Fireworks have become a real nuisance and we're not even concerned with fire danger!

I still can't envision how this work - can you hold the fabric up and take a photo of it like that? Seeing what it's attached to would help.

Thanks!
Delia

Delia:
Hello! I detached the shawl to make the arms completely visible with the upholstery fabric that is underneath. It was anchored by a corner. The shawl can still be used and draped over the two arms, then completely removed frm the two arms.

Best,
Rhonda

Thanks!
I wonder if this might not have been part of a tete-a-tete at one point, now just the one. I'll put the following description in the primary box as well.

Hello:
Do you have a thought on the type of wood this might be. Mahogany?
Thanks,
Rhonda

Oops. Sorry, I just saw you specified walnut. Thank you.
Rhonda
