Here is a fine quality antique set of 8 English Edwardian Hepplewhite style solid mahogany dining chairs, constructed in the Edwardian period, circa 1901 – 1910, in excellent condition. The chairs have been traditionally French polished by hand in our workshop, to a professional standard, therefore, the finish, colour and patination is excellent. Boasting satinwood string inlay to the arms, backs, seat frames and legs, this set consists of six side chairs and two armchairs. The chairs are constructed of solid mahogany and feature a gently arched top rail, above a finely executed pierced fretwork geometric lattice central splat, flanked by vertical rails. Incorporating a drop-in seat design, the seat frames are finely moulded. The seats are upholstered in top quality hardwearing structured chenille upholstery, with traditional hessian material to the underside. The seats are in excellent and clean condition, with no marks. The seats are firm but comfortable; you do not sink into the seat. The chairs rest on straight legs to the front, with sabre legs to the rear.

The armchairs mirror the design of the singles, with the addition of two splayed, shaped arms, secured by shaped vertical supports. In addition to the string inlay decoration, the arms also feature circular satinwood inlay. Please note, this is a true set of chairs; they have not been matched together from smaller sets of similar chairs.

The chairs would look superb in the dining or boardroom. They would certainly grace any home and are a great investment as they are extremely functional. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
