Here is a rather nice Victorian style fan-back chair. It's not terribly old (not a real Victorian), but it's a nice, comfortable chair with a nice Cherry frame.
As you can see from the photos, the chair has seen better days. The upholstery was stained, dirty, and in need of replacing. In addition, the owner also requested that we upholster over the two upper wood "wings", since he found that there was too much wood showing.
One of the wings needed a repair.
We also added a few transition pieces to make a better transition between the wing and the rest of the back, since there was a "step" in the wood there. We upholstered over the wood portions without damaging them, just in case a future owner should want to have them showing again.
This chair matches the owner's other blue striped chair (same fabric) seen here:
