Bergere Arm Chair

One of a pair of Mahogany Bergere Arm chairs , this one has suffered a not unusual broken back leg. I think this is common due to the shortness of the grain where the leg is shaped from one single piece of wood and also as the timber shrinks over time this causes the
brass wheeled casters to become loose which puts more leverage on the legs.

A repair has been undertaken before , I will take it all apart and decide then the best course of action.

2013 Lovely way to start the New Year

Fantastic Mahogany side board by Gillows of Lancaster.
Lovely condition , a few minor repairs and clean the handles ( carefully ).

New flags soldered to period keys , they now have to be cut and filed to fit. (Picture
Below ).
