George Henkels Chair

From our personal collection:   Great Rococo walnut Victorian armchair made by George Henkels, Philadelphia, PA.  It features a magnificent open carved crest, skirt and hip supports with roses and other floral decoration.   A band of open carved scrolls surround the oval back rest.  Both the seat and back are covered in a beautiful and intricate floral hand made needlepoint fabric.  We have had several of these chairs attributed to Henkels before however, this one has a more elaborate crest than most of the others.  We have enjoyed this one in our home for many years but we are remodeling our living room and we no longer have a place for it.  A great example of Henkels work!    Circa:    1870.    Dimensions:   46.5″ H   x    26″ W   x   29″ D.   Condition:   Excellent deep rich original patina finish.   There is an age separation in a joint of the right side hip but this doesn’t affect the firmness of the construction.    Price:  $1750vhc1 vhc2 vhc3 vhc4 vhc5 vhc6 vhc7
