Antique Edwardian Armchairs, Antique Victorian Armchairs and Desk Chairs

The Victorian period was sandwiched between the Georgian and Edwardian periods and is probably one of the most admired and sought after periods for furniture in general. Queen Victoria’s reign was from 1837 until her death in 1901 and furniture made during that period is, strictly speaking, Victorian, however makers continued to produce furniture in the Victorian style long after her death and indeed to this very day.

In this section you will find numerous examples of fine antique Victorian armchairs and other Victorian furniture and we have been careful to include a gallery of photographs with every listing so that you can see for yourself the kind of high quality craftsmanship on offer and the excellent condition that our inventory is in when offered for sale.

Many people find that furniture from the slightly later Edwardian period is more to their taste and we also stock a good choice of Edwardian armchairs and Edwardian office or desk chairs for you to choose from.
