Drapery back chairs are rare, through being difficult and expensive to make. The drapery back is very desirable in England and it is one of their favourite forms to make as reproductions, aided by machine production. This chair is in robust condition, and is ready to use. The upholstery fabric is sound. Drop-in seats are easily recovered. The legs are reeded. We also have the dining chairs ensuite to this at $3950 the set of six (back shown).
