A Victorian dining or drawing room chair, the quintessential symbol of the Victorian era. The back upright is waisted just above the seat, widening to a rounded curve at the top rail, forming a balloon shape. The chairs were popular from the 1830s until the end of the 19th century. British balloon back chairs were usually made from mahogany or walnut, while the Australian version was made in cedar or sometimes Huon pine. They were made in a multitude of variations, as anyone who has tried to find a matching chair to a set, can attest.
