The design of this satin birch armchair is loosely based on the Douro chair.

The legs fold on the X frame principal and the angle of the back is adjusted by the arms. However, it has taken the premise on several steps to give a far more robust and engineered chair. The upholstered arms are fixed to the back and seat by wing nuts which allow them to be removed and also to loosen in order that their position, and so the backs, can be adjusted on the brass arced uprights. The seat can also be raised to the front on two hinged brass bars with five slots to take brass hooks to the rail. The chair can be used with or without its foot rest which is fitted to the chair on two sprung hooks. The foot rest is also adjustable on a ratchet to nine different positions and has a hinged foot board that is removable. To pack the chair down for travel, two front to back bracing bars are unclipped to the front by sprung trigger mechanisms. The X frame legs then fold. The arms can be removed completely or else loosened to allow the back to fall forward onto the seat. With the seat lowered, the back can also be set to fall back on the arms and with the use of the foot rest, the chair can be used as a bed.

The chair is very well made with the use of brass ware particularly good. The oversized wing nuts to the arms, the trigger clips, the strengthening plates on the ratchet etc. all indicate a chair made to a high standard. Third Quarter 19th
Century.
