A Rare Ormolu Corner Chair
This ormolu corner chair is not often seen. It is constructed in the rope/like design that was so popular and used with many of the ormolu furnishings made by Echard & Sohne. The two sides meet at one point with the two sides meeting at right angles. Each side has a large coil like design with a maroon original seat. Between each leg is a stretcher that gives stability to the chair. A rear chair for that special room! (It was bought at Christie’s in London as seen by the sticker under the seat).
Circa: 19th Century
