A superb pair of late 19th century George II style Japanned armchairs, each chair of generous proportions and profusely decorated with gilt Chinoiserie scenes on black ground including figures, landscape, trees, birds and trellis decoration.
The chairs consist of carved scroll decoration to the top with a vase shaped backsplat with carved scroll decoration with shaped uprights leading down to shaped arms and arm supports.
The drop in seats upholstered in a gold tone fabric but this can easily be changed once purchased, if necessary.
The chairs are supported on cabriole legs to the front with carved scrolling design with outswept legs to the back, all with pad feet.
This pair of armchairs are in very good condition for age with some wear to the lacquer work and evidence of old repairs, they are of stable construction and can go straight into a home – due to the generous proportions they have the appearance of a pair of period chairs.
