Object Description

A matched set of six Regency mahogany dining chairs, in the manner of George Bullock.

England, circa 1815.

Why we like them
These superb quality, very stylish dining chairs, having a most unusual feature – turned and reeded back uprights, correspond to a design by George Bullock and relate to seat furniture he supplied for Napoleon’s use at New Longwood House at St Helena circa 1816.

It is a particularly fine and rare design, executed in the finest solid mahogany having a glorious natural patina.
