Carved miniature queen anne style chair
the picture was taken of it sitting in a normal size chair
The Carving work was done very nicely it is in need of repair
Could it be a Doll chair or even one that was for taking to businesses so they can see the workmanship put into the actual normal size
chair before they purchased the real deal

    Just bought one about the same size. I don't know anything about the subject and wish I could get information on it. I also bought the settee to match it with that deep burgandy velvet cloth. the oval backed chair is done in a diomand pattern. The carving is beautiful. I was reading on another site, about the original victorian homes would decorate a childs room with size appropriate furniture. Do you know what your piece is valued at?

    This looks like Pelham Shell & Leckie work as the rose work is very similar to the
    His and Her Tufted chairs that I just got, but, mine has the woodwork is at the top high back.
    I didn't see tufting on your chair. Hope this helps.

    It's probably a Laurel Crown Miniature Victorian Spoon-Back Armchair - ½ Scale
    CODE: CGF1/2 - . I bought a pair like it on ebay.

    So pretty. I too have a full-sized chair that is identical with the exception of the fabric - mine is white. My husband has suggested selling it a few times and I refuse!

    I have the exact same chair also, I believe it is dated 1950 at bottom.
    The seat is still strong and used regularly.
