Who knows? I can’t remember.
World, meet my Ewardian with a hint of Egyptian Revival chair. It will be a bedroom chair in either the cave or the tulip room.
EER chair, meet blog world.
I went through a certain degree of adventure to collect the mirror. It’s worth it. Unusually, I have provenance: it came from a chateau sale via an antique fair in Paris.It’s in remarkable good nick considering it came from the same very narrow window of time as the chair (1901-1910).
I don’t have to do a thing to it. That makes a refreshing change and saves me some time. The problem with most old pieces is the amount of labour required to rescue them .
I don’t have to do a thing to the French wall lantern of similar vintage either. It’s already restored and rewired to 21st century standards.
