This is an elegant bespoke pair of new leather 'Gainsborough chairs' in a beautiful antique chestnut 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.
Pull-up leathers do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide and are designed to change colour and sheen when pulled or stretched. They are not as colour fast as pigmented hides and are designed to allow furniture to age and relax through use and over time. Evidence of marks and scarring will be seen through the surface finish.
The studding is achieved with close individual nails / studs not by using strips, and each nail is individually hammered in by hand.
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.
