Wonderful Papier-Mache Slipper Chair

No. R16299

Wonderful Papier-Mache slipper chair gilded, painted and inlaid with mother-of-pearl.

Superb form and condition.

My period is usually pre 1840 but these Papier-Mache forms (which are 1870) are so amazing that I’ve had a dozen of so over the years.   The shape of the top is pretty much impossible with unlaminated wood.  These are worked up in layers of course paper and glue over a mold to produce these amazing undulating shapes.

Attributed to either Jennens & Bettridge (Birmingham, London & New York) or Mcallum & Hodson
