Why it is special

Besides from its restrained, quintessentially Regency design, this armchair is distinguished by its unusually large proportions, being the most deep-seated chair from that period that we have ever seen. Its austere, unembellished masculine design makes it a perfect gentleman's library armchair. The reeded front legs on original oversize brass castors and panelled front seat rail typical of the Gillows output from early 19th century. 

Extremely heavy quality, the seat is now sprung for extra comfort.

Established in the early 18th century, Gillows of Lancaster are among the few most celebrated English furniture makers, famed for their use of fine timbers and exceptional quality of craftsmanship.
