PRESENTING A GORGEOUS Pair of British Library Chairs with Lions Heads.

Late 19th or very early 20th Century, circa 1890 -1910.

Beautiful reclining pair of chairs. Each armrest consisting of a barley twist support and ending in a lions head with really nice natural patina.

The back of each chair leans at a 45 degree angle, beautifully cushioned with the back of each chair having fluted sides and ending in a lions head to match the armrest.

The front legs of each chair curve outwards as do the back legs.



Both chairs have been re-upholstered in premium quality tan leather hides with some darker brown specks. The leather has been fastened using brass round headed tacks.

The back of each chair has likewise been upholstered in the same leather hide.

The leather alone on these chairs cost over $2,000.
