This armchair upholstery is tapentry pattern, and it has a lower seat than most chairs. It has turned or barley twist legs that end on ball feet. There is also decorative carving on a panel on the front of the chair.'s back. It is interesting altogether, the way the turned legs end in a ball with fluting or ridges. The chair is sturdy, but the wood trim that frames the back is in need of attention. The finish is uneven in some places and there are a few surface marks and dings. Overall, the chair is attractive in a different sort of way. It measures 40 inches from the back to the floor. It is 16 inches from the seat to the floor. The seat is 23 inches wide and it is 22 inches deep. It is 28.5 inches from the armrest to the floor.

What an interesting chair - that seems to combine elements of so many different styles I'm not entirely sure where it came from, only that it's probably Euroepan and late 19th or early 20th Century
