SOLD! Small Victorian Mahogany “Grape Back” Side Chair

Oops… every now and then we make a mistake when purchasing an item without having first inspected it. 

This is a wonderful old Victorian “grapeback” style chair, the hardwood top of which is intricately carved with grapes and leaves.  It’s on the smaller side, so would fit easily in an unused area.  And it’s adorable with muted colors.  But…

Condition:  The bottom (underneath) has given way, and the springs are popping out as you’ll see in the photos below  Someone who has any upholstery experience will probably know exactly what to do to make repairs and turn this into an absolutely wonderful addition to their home, but that someone is not me.

Otherwise, it really is in good shape.

Dimensions:    Our small Victorian grape back chair is 16 1/2 inches deep in the seat and about 24 inches deep overall. The front of the seat is about 23 inches wide. At its narrowest it’s about 19 inches wide.  Overall it’s about 39 inches high.

FIRM Price:  $35.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.65 for a total of $31.63. 

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.
