Object Description

Simply wonderful set of six antique dining chairs. These chairs are the classic “Kennedy’s pattern” Gillows design with reeded leg, the waving frond carving and the combination of caned seat with squab which are all typical of Gillows designs of the period. They are simulated rosewood, which is beach painted to look like rosewood. These chairs have worn and faded to a desirable level of patination, they can be waxed with beeswax to bring back the shine and preserve the look. Alternatively the simulated rosewood can be restored to make them look like the manufacturer intended. They should have a seat squab, so do let us know if you want a quote for the upholstery.
