Antique Art Deco Black Leather Low Shell Armchair c.1930


Product ID: 342 SKU: 07807. Category: .

We are pleased to present this fascinating and unusual antique Art Deco low shell armchair, dating from around 1930.

This pleasing chair is suitable for a youngster as it is so low to the floor. It is also a enjoyable piece for an adult who doesn’t mind being seated so close to the ground.

The black leather upholstery is soft and supple and is in lovely condition. The chair rests on its original ceramic castors. It also features superb brass studding at the back which does not take away from the overall rounded lines of the chair when seen from the front side.

The piece has a shell shaped back and this design is typical of art deco styling which presented natural motifs such as shells, flowers and sunrises. During the art deco period, furniture dimensions changed and armchairs frequently stood on lower legs and were made not only to satisfy the eye, but also for comfort. This organic shape will fit perfectly into any contemporary house.


This lovely art deco black leather low shell armchair is in excellent condition, please see photographs for confirmation.
