This is a list of our current stock of chairs made by Howard and Sons. Please enquire if you do not see what you are looking for.

Antique Easy Armchair, Grafton Model By Howard and Sons of London

Antique easy armchair made by Howard and Sons of London. This is a special order Grafton model with ball and claw feet and show wood between the legs. Unusually for a Grafton model the base of the chair is serpentine, the lower rail is usually flat from front to back. This chair has its original back cushion with writing on and is stamped Howard and Sons Berners Street. Needless to say, this is a very comfortable chair indeed.

Late Nineteenth Century Victorian Antique Howard Chair On Unusual Ball And Claw Feet

Antique Howard and Sons armchair with scroll arms and cabriole legs in the manner of the Queen Anne period. This chair is very deep and comfortable and it retains the original and wonderfully soft sprung horsehair back. Once lost it is almost impossible to re-create this kind of upholstery so we are very pleased to have found the chair in this condition. The overall shape is very generous, wide and deep and with a good rake to the seat so the cushion and the owner do not slide out. The front legs are a great colour and will improve once we have had them polished if required. There are even traces of the original gilding on the carved motifs. All in all a really fine chair which is comfortable, ususual and elegant.

Howard and Sons Library Chair

Howard and Sons Library Chair. This chair is almost identical to those we have had before and as usual they do vary a little with the overall dimensions. This one unusually does not have the address stamp on the back leg, but the casters are stamped and the frame is planed with chamfer edges as is typical. This is a good large scale and very comfortable chair.
