A fantastic antique steamer ship swivel chair. It would originally have been secured to the floor in the dining room on a large ship. The ships were built to impress with opulent decoration hence the quality of the wood and heavy cast iron base. 

The chair is made from mahogany and cast iron. The seat is wooden framed with original upholstery underneath and recently covered in soft black leather. The cast iron legs have a stunning rams head decoration. 

The swivel mechanism works perfectly and the chair stands without being secured so would make a lovely desk or occasional chair. A stunning period chair with lots of history. Perfect to incorporate into a modern interior to add soul and character to a space.


Repair to top rail and strengthening brackets added (historical repair). The chair is still structurally sound and strong.Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
