Late 19th Century Howard Armchair

by Howard & Sons
Traditionally upholstered and sumptuously re-covered in RU Burnt Sienna Velvet (7985), with turned front legs on castors. Stamped Howard & Sons Ltd to back leg

England, circa 1880

The armchair is an example of Howard & Son's 'siege de duvet' which was a pocketed feather cushion system they invented, often now referred to as a sacked back. This cushioning made Howard & Son's sofas and armchairs far more comfortable than their competitors
