The arms are upholstered in matching leather and held in place by scrolling supports, with a carved apron beneath the seat and sides, simulating a beaded edge. With outswept back legs finishing on scrolling metal feet (allowing the chairs to move with ease). The front legs are well carved with foliate designs, c-scrolling and finish on a hairy paw foot.
