List price

A 1940s armchair with bentwood armrests and its original faux leather upholstery. It also features a brass studded design around the backrest. It's one of the classic designs produced under wartime restrictions in the UK. The markings on the underside tell that it was made by Beautility Furniture Ltd. of London, and the model number F. 175 indicates it was made around 1948. How it arrived in Bologna is still a mystery!

Found in Bologna. 

Condition: Very good. This chair is in very good vintage condition with wear and patina consistent with its age and use. The faux leather has some slight paint splatter and minimal wear without tears. The wooden frame is in very good overall condition and the chair is solid.

Dimensions: H 86 cm x W 51.5cm x D 47cm. Sitting height 49cm.
