1880's Walnut Sleepy Hollow Reclining Chair w/Foot Rest

(Item: 4693)

1880's Walnut Sleepy Hollow Reclining Chair with Foot Rest

An early and unique reclining chair, nicknamed the "Sleepy Hollow" chair. When fully reclined it forms a nice and comfy curved hollow. The chair is solid walnut, with burled walnut embellishments. The footrest pulls out from under the seat, and is upholstered on one side, walnut on the reverse side. The stretchers are turned, the hardware is original. The seat back has a grooved iron support screwed to the back, where the v-shaped walnut and iron support rod fits when it reclines at different angles. There are two original hinges that attach the back and lower seat. These are under the upholstery and are not seen. There are a couple of old repairs to the wood which are solid and not noticeable, but must be mentioned, one under the left arm, and one under the seat frame. The chair has been re-glued and the finish has been polished. The floral tapestry upholstery is approximately 30 years old. It is in tones of peach, cream, pink and soft blue, with leaf green gimp trim. It is in good condition, slightly faded, but pretty. The "Sleepy Hollow" reclining chair is 38 1/2" tall, 25" wide, 38" long when closed, and 65" long when fully reclined. This unusual and cozy "Sleepy Hollow" chair will be a conversation starter in any setting, and is great for catching a nap, too!
