    Antique Bespoke English Handmade Gainsborough Leather Desk Chair

    This is a very elegant bespoke new leather 'Gainsborough chair' in a beautiful antique chestnut brown colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality.

    ‘Old English' is an aniline-finished leather that is tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed or ‘aged' finish from new. Extra fat liquors are applied during tanning to give the leather a slightly waxy feel. These leathers are designed to allow the natural marking variations of the leather to show through to the finish coat.
    The chair is upholstered in top quality Scottish cow hide which has been hand dyed and antiqued. Because they are hand dyed we can finish the leather to any colour requested, and the beautiful antique patina is achieved by the special walnut based stains that we use in the process.
    The studding is achieved with close individual nails / studs not by using strips, and each nail is individually hammered in by hand.
    The show wood on the chair is solid mahogany and the frames are made from solid beech, so we only use hardwoods.
    Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for.

    Available in other colours.
    In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
