This is an 1860s antique English campaign chair, although it has elements suggestive of both Italian and Hollywood Regency design.

That's the Chinoiserie design elements at work. The term and style came into being during the early and mid-Victorian years, and here is is represented in its original state.

The turned oak legs are in a faux bamboo style. Leather arm straps and old nail heads studding the upholstery in the seat are excellent design elements. Thick iron straps form a primitive but very clever mechanism underneath the seat for folding the chair securely.

The chair has been reupholstered in the last 60 years in a black vinyl.

About 36-1/2" high unfolded, and 46" folded and 22-3/4" wide. This will be partially unassembled to save costs on shipping.

If you'd rather get it intact, convo me your town, state and zip for a quote, but based on the size of box it would require we're probably talking about $120, although if you want both chairs it would be about the same to ship both to you in one box...

OK, you know that place online? The 'most beautiful' etc. place with the prices to match? Search their 'campaign chair' entries to find this EXACT chair, for $3,250, only restored and in leather. Wow, blew me away just now.

Well, I am not a New York or Beverly Hills dealer, and these chairs (I have two matching campaign chairs in my shop just now, this listing is for one of them) are not restored to mint condition.

But they are in decent condition. On this one, there is some finish wear showing as scratches and scrapes on the oak. One of the screws that enters the back of the leg and screws into the hole at the end of a leather arm strap is missing.

So this campaign chair need some finish restoration or refinishing, a new screw, and leather upholstery to make it original.
