Armless upholstered chairs have been in existence for quite some time. Indeed, the practice of padding or upholstering chairs dates back to the 16th century when they were used by the wealthy as a symbol of their affluence and luxury. Armless upholstered chairs also followed this development closely and have been in use since then.

Well, at least they were 19th century! Unfortunately, with steadily increasing labour and material costs the era of the bodger (or chair-maker) was close to an end before the end of the 19th century. The end of truly hand-made chairs: mortised and tenoned without the aid of machinery; with turned and carved legs, sometimes even with carved back rails depending on the particular skills of the craftsman making them. Very few examples of Australian chairs with the Trafalgar-style back have carving on the actual cresting rails; these chairs, even as individuals, are eagerly sought and highly prized.
