Victorian Style Telephone Seat with Shelf
Victorian design telephone seat with a solid mahogany carved frame. Available as either a left hand or right hand version. The upholstered seat has a buttoned back rest. To the side is the telephone table top with a shelf under. The practical single drawer which is opened by way of a carved wooden handle. The chair sits on shaped and carved slender legs.
The telephone table was popular in the traditional home before the arrival of cordless phones and mobiles. However is still a wonderfully practical piece of hallway furniture or as an occasional seat in the living room.
