In its broadest sense, leather is any type of tanned animal hide. Different types of leather are characterized by both the type of animal skin used and the tanning and manufacturing methods employed. Artifical leather (pleather, leatherette) is a fabric of finish intended to substitute for leather in upholstery and clothing where a leather-like finish is required but the actual natural material is cost-prohibitive or unsuitable. EuroLux Antiques uses the word leather to define both natural and artificial leather.
In overall good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include nicks or dings on a piece of furniture, normal separation at joints in wood due to expansion and contraction over time, minor damage to veneer has been stabilized, most locks functioning, most drawers and doors open or slide easily, some original trim may be missing or has been replaced with genuine period-correct substitutes or new reproductions, and there may be one or more splits in the wood due to age and use. If there has been a break in the marble, it has been repaired and the repair may be visible. There may be minor restoration that is visible. Chairs considered 'good condition' may have professional structural repairs but are considered to be structurally sound. These types of repairs may be visible upon close inspection. Upholstered items may show wear consistent with age and use and may need to be reupholstered. EuroLux Antiques makes no representation regarding the comfort of chairs or useability for the customer's particular application.
Shows normal wear to the finish and miscellaneous nicks, scuffs, and scratches to the leather upholstery especially on the corners and sides due to age and use. There is some color variation of the wood across the chairs. There are nicks to the leather on the back of two chairs.

Gothic GOTHIC REVIVAL STYLE
As the middle class rose in status and wealth with the advent of the Industrial Revolution, more people were able to afford furniture. This flattening of society in combination with technological advancements created a surge of furniture production. Improved transportation meant a greater variety of wood was available at lower costs. For the first time, furniture became accessible and affordable to the common man. From the 1830s to the end of the 19th century, furniture makers reached back to earlier historical styles and reinterpreted them with a great deal of creativity and experimentation. Although machines were used to increase speed and productivity, most of the carvings were still done by hand. Consumers were hungry for large, ornate and heavily carved furniture that would impress their friends and family and show off their newly found wealth.
The Gothic Revival style brought back the beautiful and ornate architectural motifs found on Gothic cathedrals built during the twelfth through fourteenth centuries. Hallmarks of the Gothic Revival style include ornate tracery panels, quatrefoil, rosettes, pointed arches (ogives), linen fold motif, gargoyles and monk's heads. These decorative elements are commonly found carved on Gothic Revival pieces, reminding one of large stained glass windows and sculptures found in medieval churches. Most furniture pieces were made of oak or walnut and were finished with a dark stain. On most pieces, the carvings were hand-done and it is interesting to note the unique differences on different carved panels. French consumers clamored for the ornate designs of Gothic Revival furniture and decorative arts, which were viewed as the pinnacle of elegant taste.
The Fine Print
Because EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no bids have been placed upon the item. On occasion, a piece listed on a website may no longer be available. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of our inventory records but we often have customers interested in the same item at the same time. In those cases, we defer to the customer who placed the earlier order. We apologize in advance by any inconvenience this may cause. Because of this, we encourage all of our buyers to purchase the item as quickly as possible so that your treasured find doesn't sell elsewhere to someone else. Happy browsing and thanks!

A Note About Shipping EuroLux Antiques takes a great deal of pride in its packing and shipping. Please keep in mind that packing fragile and irreplaceable vintage and antique items is not a quick or cheap endeavor. Proper packaging is expensive and bulky and takes a great deal of time to do the job correctly. Boxes are often far larger than most customers (or eBay) would imagine when packed properly. Occasionally, eBay's shipping calculator over-estimates shipping charges. We make a concerted effort to refund grossly excessive shipping charges whenever possible.
When a customer selects UPS Ground, we sometimes ship with an equivalent service such as FedEx or DHL. The shipping charges are similar, and we have found these companies also offer our customers sup
