……………… LOS ANGELES , SILVER LAKE , 90026 PICK UP ONLY - NO PACKAGING OR SHIPPING sale is for a very old English made , Savonarola , X style Wood Chair with incredible dog figure arm rests .I don't have a lot of history on this , except the person I purchased it from , said a great grandfather brought the chair over from England around the turn of the century , and he was not the first owner of the piece . That makes sense as to the arm rests , because the English are very fond of their dogs and anything with the image of a dog .
Please do not consider the present covering on it , as that was a terrible choice of another family owner . The person I purchased it from said they remembered it had some type of old dark brocade fabric on it . I have one close photo of the end of a part of the seat frame , where you can see many old tack holes , so this was likely recovered several time over the years .
I think the design of the chair should make it not difficult to recover in a proper period fabric .
In one of my photos I shown the chair partially folded in toward the center , but it will not go any further because of the present covers .
This style chair was often , but not always designed to fold up in half .
You can see in my photos the aged patina on the arm rests and dog heads , from years of use .
You can also see in another photos the age patina sear on the bottom of the feet .
I see no damage to any of the wood , and all looks to be in good condition . It should be solid and strong , as it was very well made . I do not know the type of wood used . It has some brass caps on some of the end pieces .
You can see in a couple of photos , some of the old jute webbing still on the chair , but broken off from age .
I did not try it , but I do not think anyone could sit in the chair as it is , because of the trapping .
I may just remove all the present coverings to see if I could fold it in half , but I need to give that more thought .It is such a handsome old piece , so unique with the dog arm rest , it is likely one of a kind . Because of the size and shape of the piece , it would be extremely expensive to ship , surely several hundred dollars , so it would be best for someone to pick it up locally .
