LCG-056  Lancing Chair

A Victorian nursing chair, found in a junk shop in Oxfordshire, was the inspiration for this piece.

The seat is constructed with individually stitched coil springs, hand tied on a webbing lattice. The edge is sprung, and is formed with a cane, whilst the first and second stuffings of black fibre and hair are stitched in place to form a resilient seat platform. The back is also stuffed with fibre and hair, cotton wadding and a layer of wool before the top fabric is applied. This is then hand-finished around the delicate scroll facing.

Once this is done, the outside back is fixed and hand-stitched up each edge to form a smooth, flat join with the rest of the chair body. The chair is supported by hand-turned solid mahogany legs on antique brass castors.

Truly an heirloom quality item.
