Famous Pair of Black Leather Mahogany Gainsborough Library Chairs


Classic pair of black leather and mahogany Gainsborough library chairs made in the George III taste, decommissioned from Universal Studios property department in Hollywood CA. Once part of their movie set inventory, they now feature a new smooth, and supple high quality full grain leather upholstery dyed black and bordered with brass nailhead trim. These library chairs have a serpentine crest with peaked corners and a mahogany frame. The generous seat has wide padded armrests that curve back. The chairs are supported by reeded front legs with "H" stretchers. Both chairs still retain the metal inventory plaques from universal studios with the stock number and name. These chairs have had a long career in show business and are now ready to retire to a quiet library. Purchased from an estate in San Francisco CA.
