An pair of unusual oak hall chairs of the late Regency, in the manner of George Smith or Richard Bridgens
England, circa 1825.
Why we like them
The architectural boldness and chunkiness of these hall chairs is highly unusual. Also of great colour and natural patination, these chairs are highly decorative and rare.
The chair’s front legs are virtually identical to those of an armchair, attributed to George Smith, sold Christie’s London, 22 May 2008, lot 47 while its back legs are chamfered in the manner, characteristic of George Bullock and Richard Bridgens.
