Circa 1830 George III Fortuny Upholstered Gainsborough Mahogany Armchair


In stock


A very handsome Georgian Gainsborough mahogany armchair featuring beautiful Fortuny fabric. Fortuny fabric is known for its unique technique on how the fabric is dyed that was created by Mariano Fortuny. The beauty of Fortuny is that no two runnings are ever the same. Each is a unique piece of art in its own right, with variations in color and texture. The armrests are unholstered for added comfort. The Marlborough front legs and saber back legs are joined by a box stretcher for structural integrity and making the lower area of the chair visually balanced. Robustly built, this elegant armchair is unique and one of a kind. The perfect showstopper for any office, library, or room.

Purchase the other, almost identical, George III Gainsborough Armchair, also available, to make a complementary pair.
