Beauty in the beast

This chair is a piece of art!


It belongs to a relative and unfortunately for me,
she wants it back.



I can't stop touching the exquisite lions.


The patina on the arms from years of use is perfect.


I'm now on a mission to get a chair just like this!

  1. I'd love to know where she got this chair! My grandparents best friend had an entire dining room set, called "The Hunt" I believe. Each chair was a different animal, and the table legs had all the animals on them. I only saw the set once, probably 35 years ago, and it was beautiful!

    1. Hi Paula ... from what I understand she inherited the chair from her father, who received it from an aunt.
      I have the chair reupholstered and will post an update soon ... it turned out beautiful!
