Vintage Bedroom/Nursing Chair
Here for sale is a fully restored Bedroom/Nursing chair that has real age. Probably made around the 1930s/1940s this Oak chair is solid and in great condition for its age.
The first thing you notice about the chair, other than its dinky proportions, is the unusual snowflake style back support. This is superbly crafted and is a sign of the level of craftsmanship that went into the making of the chair. A shape like this would be time consuming to make today with modern electric tools, imagine what it was like to cut with hand tools!
The frame of the chair has a lovely bent one piece back and armrest. There has been a repair made to this (as can be seen in the pictures) however this has in no way affected the strength or support offered. There are a number of subtle features on the chair that reinforce the fact that this was more than a generic mass produced item. The lines are very stylish and very functional.
With a new reupholstered seat sponge, using a blue Gingham flannel cloth, this chair has lots of style and really stands out in a room.
The chair was probably made to be a nursing chair and would’ve been kept next to a baby’s cot, giving it a history that goes deeper than just its age. You could still use the chair in this way or in any other room in the house for that matter! It is incredibly comfy!
Whether being put in a modern apartment or a vintage cottage, this chair will fit in and be a fully functioning and much loved item of furniture.
