Traditional Upholstery of Period and Antique Furniture by

Vanessa Pascan



Italian set of 6 guilt wood open arm chairs with shaped upholstered back, upholstered seat and arm pads, serpentine seat on cabriole legs. Restored and re-upholstered for a museum in Manchester. The frames were so old that staples had to be used in place of tacks to reduce damage to the frames and guilt.

Seat completely padded with best quality horse hair, no springs. Scrim over the hair and calico lined throughout. Scrim on seat and hand stitched to give shaped edge.
