Pair of 1930s Petite Italian Velvet Armchairs

AGE: circa 1930s
DIMENSIONS: 31” wide x 24” deep x 28” h; seat 16 ¾” h
MATERIALS: Cherry, velvet, brass
CONDITION:  Very good; sturdy and comfortable; velvet shows age-appropriate wear and fading


A charming pair of petite armchairs in green velvet with great vintage style. Similar to a tub chair in style, except that the rolled arms taper in diameter towards the back of the chair, and the back is straight rather than curved. Brass nailheads outline the border between the velvet and the solid cherry frame. The slightly splayed front legs end in casters. The velvet shows age-appropriate wear and fading but is in usable condition. These petite chairs are very sturdy and quite comfortable, particularly for smaller individuals.
