Rare Scottish walnut Library chair

Note the arm spirals sweep to the right and left as you look at the chair as does the gadrooning on the top of the front legs, which are finished with brass castors. The stylish reverse curved back legs are unusual and without any breaks. Covered in hand dyed printed leather (Moroccan) see arm photo. This is the only example on the market by this top of the range Scottish maker. Retaining the original mellow colour and patina.
