Collection of a Raleigh Gentleman

The consignor acquired the chair from the original family 20 years ago, who purchased it in 1956 as a Christmas gift for their father. An early example in very good condition. The naugahyde seen here was originally an expensive choice in upholstery, but proved to be longer lasting and low maintenance.

Good estate condition with minor scuffs to rosewood from use.
