Brand new custom made for this chair with new overstuffed feather filled internals. Original Porters chairs like this from the Victoria era are very rare, even the reproductions are rare as they are complicated to make. This chair was reupholstered at some point in its life, the work has been done to a high standard, the entire back and sides are one piece of premium thick hide leather, if you have a look at the back and side pictures you will see there are no join lines, usually the leather is cut in three pieces so upholsterers can use off cuts, not on this chair, they have used one whole hide.
