This chair is solid and very sturdy with no breaks or repairs we can find and the old needlepoint covering is just lovely but does show some wear and some fading as common with age. I have tried to show this in the close up pictures of the seat..nothing that distracts from the beauty of this chair at all in my opinion.
Elegant Victorian ladies chair. They are sometimes called hip chairs because of the "hip" rails that are added on either side of the seat cushions that provide additional strength to the back of the chair. The seat is padded and also have springs underneath to provide the most cushion possible and be very comfortable to sit on.
It is comfortable and nice for both daily use and entertaining guests.
