Lot 416 (Twentieth Century Design, 8th September 2017)

Sold for £6,200

Lot details
Philip Webb for Morris & Co - An ebonised walnut ladderback open reclining armchair, having floral upholstery, five adjustable settings with bobbin turnings, w.67cm
Footnote: This armchair was one of the firm's popular designs and was available both in this black finish and in mahogany. The illustrated catalogue produced by Morris & Co. c. 1912 shows that loose covers could be supplied either in 'Utrecht Velvet' or in chintz (a printed cotton). The commercial success of the design encouraged other firms, notably Liberty & Co. of London and Gustav Stickley, an American workshop, to produce their own versions.
