Object Description

Large set of fourteen Edwardian period Hepplewhite antique dining chairs. This is a remarkably fine quality set of dining chairs made after designs by the renowned 18th century furniture designer George Hepplewhite. Although there is no furniture documented as being made by Hepplewhite personally, the widespread popularity of his designs mean that he is considered as one of the greatest English furniture designers of the 18th, or indeed any, century. He is also notable for being called George, while all the others seem to be called Thomas. There is a lot of mystery surrounding the life of George Hepplewhite as there are so few facts known about his life. His pattern books were published posthumously by someone called Alice Hepplewhite who is thought to be his wife, but know one knows for sure. This set of chairs are typical of Hepplewhite designs being well balanced, light in design, symmetrical and with shield shape back. The front legs are slender, the back ones have a generous sweep for stability. The back splat has an elegant oval satinwood panel inlaid into the centre. This is a very elegant set of chairs made during the last great period of furniture manufacture in the United Kingdom.
