Here is a fine quality set of 8 antique English Edwardian Chippendale style mahogany dining chairs, constructed in the late Victorian period, circa 1880, which have been newly upholstered, and are in excellent condition. The set consists of six side chairs and two armchairs. The chairs are constructed of solid mahogany and feature a moulded serpentine top rail, with a carved floral central pediment, flanked by foliate carvings to the ears. Below is a finely executed pierced fretwork central splat, flanked by vertical moulded rails. Incorporating on overstuffed seat design, the seats are firm but comfortable; you do not sink into the seat. The seats have been newly upholstered in top quality hardwearing wool & cotton chenille upholstery, in a light grey colour, with traditional hessian material to the underside. The seats are finished with matching colour braiding. Therefore the seats are in excellent and clean condition, with no marks.
The chairs are raised on cabriole legs to the front, featuring acanthus leaf carvings to the knees, and sabre legs to the rear. The armchairs mirror the design of the singles, with the addition of two splayed arms, decorated with scroll carvings, secured by shaped vertical supports. Please note, this is a true set of chairs; they have not been matched together from smaller sets of similar chairs.
The chairs feature a rich dark brown mahogany colour. As they boast the original polish, they have a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
The chairs would look superb in the dining or boardroom. They would certainly grace any home and are a great investment as they are extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
These dining chairs are in excellent condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges, frames and legs, but nothing significant considering the age of them. The seats have been newly upholstered; therefore the fabric is in excellent and clean condition, with no marks. If you do not like the colour/style of the upholstery, we can recover the seats in a fabric of your choice. If you would like the seats recovered, please contact us for a quote.
