Full Description
This beautiful reclining chair was made by Robert Daws, an English fine furniture maker who worked at 17 Margaret Street, Cavendish Square, London between 1820 and 1839.

He first patented his ‘improved recumbent chair’ in 1827 and this lovely example is made in solid mahogany with a tall supportive back and original slide out footstool. The reclining mechanism is operated by a brass button at the side of the seat rail, the seat slides forward and the back is pivoted so that it gently tilts into position. The arms with carved scrolled supportsand the front legs very well turned with original brass casters. The back legs splayed and hocked again terminating in original brass casters. The stool can sit firmly within the frame of the chair or be removed and set on fold out legs concealed beneath the frame and set as an angled footstool.

The whole chair and stool upholstered in pale cream leather with button detailing and the arm caps finished with brass antique nails.

A really good original and solid example, recently re-upholstered and in excellent condition throughout.
