R J Horner Company inlaid mahogany desk chair with mother of pearl highlights. This chair measures 41 inches high to the top, 26.5 inches high to the arms, 20 inches high to the seat, 20 inches wide at the crest, 25.25 inches wide at the arms, 23 inches wide at the seat, 23 inches deep, and 21 x 21 inside. Newly upholstered in cream damask and re-glued, it is both strong and comfortable. It would make the perfect desk or side chair. In 1886, Robert J. Horner set up his business at 61-65 West 23rd Street in Manhattan. What made his marketing plan unique is that he targeted not only wealthy New Yorkers who were seeking to furnish or redecorate their homes, but those of more moderate means as well. In fact, the company specifically referred to its wares as "First-class and Medium Quality Furniture" in its advertising at the time. In this way, Horner took up where J&J.W. Meeks had left off in 1868. "An article in The New York Times written within the year the firm opened noted that Horner reproduced "European novelties", but was also an innovator with new designs and always on the cusp of emerging trends. The feature also noted that the company manufactured all their own goods at that time. They used fine mahogany and oak hardwoods to produce high style pieces that remain extremely popular with Victorian furniture enthusiasts today."
