A pair of late-19th century, upholstered, coffermakers armchairs
Upholstered in the red velvet faced with brass studs. This model of armchair is based on a group of 17th century chairs at Knole in Kent. A similar chair is illustrated in English Chairs, published by the Victoria & Albert Museum, 1970, figure 12, formerly in the possession of William Juxon (d1663), Archbishop of Canterbury.
The coffermakers were normally producers of dome-lidded trunks, hence the name coffers. Their form of construction, in which a wooden framework is entirely covered with nailed textile or leather was also applied by this trade to this particular model of chair (see also an article by R W Symmonds Coffer Makers and Upholsterer's Chairs, The Antique Collector, Jan/Feb 1950, pp 19/25.
