We are pleased to be offering today this wonderful hard to find item in the Victorian world which is a mahogany barley twist brass accent arm chair in the Merklen style. It dates from the 1880s., this is a prime example of Merklen’s craftsmanship as displayed in this unusual style arm chair. It has the brass lion heads on top of the back posts, starburst type center backsplash, brass accented knuckles on the barley twist arms, solid mahogany scooped out seat that sits upon a barley twist talon brass foot with a wooden ball legged base. It is really quite unique. This chair is 25 inches wide, 20 inches deep and 40 inches high. The seat is 17 inches high and the arms are 26 inches high. The cross stretcher on the base of the chair the spindle has been stepped on or pushed out. It will need to be re-glued and the right side arm has an early repair that we will detail out prior to shipping. This is in as found condition. It is very unusual to have two Merklen pieces available on the same site at the same time but we also have a large parlor stand listed.
