Object History

Sabred legs are more usually seen on dining chairs, library chairs and salon chairs where the sabre points forward and backwards when on the rear legs. It is rare to see a pair of chairs as in this case where both front and back legs are sabred pointing to left and right. The sabred leg is always associated with being a feature of Regency furniture where it is viewed as a symbol of Great Britain’s naval supremacy and is sometimes referred to as a Trafalgar Leg after Nelson’s famous naval engagement.

Good, marks and wear consistent with age and use. Full condition report available upon request.
