Rosewood Meeks Henry Ford Armchair

Victorian Laminated Rosewood Armchair attributed to J. & J.W. Meeks in fine original finish. The armchair has a gorgeous open pierced carved back with deep floral and scrolled crest. The sides have leaves, grapes and vines, all in the "Henry Ford" pattern. The frame has an accentuated form with gracefully shaped arms and seat with more scroll carvings. The delicate cabriole legs have scrolled leaves. The deeply carved cartouche in the seat apron is a slight variation to the Henry Ford carvings illustrated on pages 82, 83 and 100 of "American Furniture of the 19th Century" by Eileen and Richard Dubrow. There are casters on the front and none on the back (which makes the chair recline in a more comfortable position). The velvet fabric is old but usable. A very handsome chair from the mid 19th century, made by one of America's most competent cabinet artisans. Circa: 1855 Dimensions: 45 1/2" H x 27" W x 32" D Finish: Good original Price: $12,500.00
