moreLouis XV style leather upholstered carved beechwood porter chair. The carved frame has floral motifs and cabriole legs upholstered in olive leather with brass nail head trim.
A porter chair was a type of chair used in medieval England and later in France. Usually formed in a high-grade leather or red velvet, it was placed by the front door of an estate or home for use by a gatekeeper or porter who was in charge of screening guests and visitors. Since there were often cold breezes near a front door, the chair was designed to envelop and keep the servant relatively warm in his task of remaining at the door for long periods.
The chair has some moderate abrasions and scratches to the leather as pictured, but no tears. Beautifully carved cabriole legs on what is probably a beechwood frame. Moderate wear commensurate with age. Seat height is 16". The cushion is fixed in place and the chair is comfortable.The chair dates to the mid-20th century. less
