An extremely elegant, superb quality set of eight George III period mahogany dining chairs, comprising a pair of armchairs and six side chairs.
English, circa 1780
Why we like them
Wonderfully elegant model, looking very delicate but in fact unusually strong – the sign of a skilled craftsman. This ‘Pompeian’ design is the epitome of the late Neoclassicism, introduced into English architecture and interior decoration by Robert Adam in late 1760’s. Absolutely delightful chairs, covered in John Boyd Textiles luxurious horsehair fabric with brass trim. Having been preserved in almost untouched and unused condition, they did not require any serious restoration work except reupholstery.
