A wonderful tub chair of walnut likely imported into the UK from Belgium/France in early 20th century. The spare, sinewy style is looking ahead to modern times which would be devoid of carvings, moldings, etc. It is a beautiful form and it's original upholstery (shown bottom of last image) was velvet strie over horsehair stuffings with cotton traditionally stitched over 8-way handtied springs. It also shows an extra degree of difficulty to any upholsterer viewing... the side and back rail is upholstered to be on-view, rather than hidden by the outside-arm panels - as is shown in the top image of same picture done in chinoiserie tapestry and seen in an antique shop during a recent trip to New Orleans LA.  Questions?
