(SOLD) 19th Century Campaign Folding Armchair by J. Alderman, London

No Price

J. Alderman was a well known chair, couch, and carriage manufacturer when he established an independent business in 1860 at 16 Soho Square.  He remained in that location until 1890 when he moved to Charing Cross Road and changed the company name.  This chair most likely dates to around 1870 and is caned satin birch with brass fittings and casters on the legs.  The legs unscrew and it has a release mechanism at the arms allowing the chair to fold for easy transport.  Not surprisingly for its age, there is an obvious repair to the caning on the back.  Hardware in the arms suggest it may have had a removable helper bar at one point.   An engraved brass plate on the back of this Victorian era chair reads:  J. Alderman, Inventor, Patentee & Manufacturer, 16, Soho Square, London.
