Object Description

A Superb Quality Pair Of Regency Mahogany Hall 
Chairs Having Superbly Figured Shaped Backs With
Central Set Crest Over Well Figured Seats And Elegant 
Fluted Sabre Legs 

(The original purpose of hall chairs were to be used in
the hallway of a house and their function was for the guests
to take a seat on arrival whilst waiting for the owner to come 
and greet them. Hence the wooden seats with the theory 
that often people would come in from outside with wet
and dirty clothes, meaning any kind of fabric finish would 
need recovering with far too much regularity. Hall chairs 
come in many different shapes, sizes and qualities, from the
mid 18th century right through to the early 20th century. These
are an excellent regency period example in superb condition
constructed from the highest grade of mahogany that would 
have been available at the time. They retain an exceptional
colour and patina that is impossible to recreate other than 
through years and years of use. Unfortunately we have not been
able to put a family name to the crest on the back but most 
certainly this will have been placed here to show the original
owners.)
