This is a superb quality antique pair of Victorian mahogany & marquetry inlaid salon side chairs, circa 1890, which has been newly upholstered, and is in excellent condition. The side chairs boast curved, shaped backs, featuring exquisite elaborate satinwood and bone foliate & urn marquetry inlaid back splats and elegant pierced fretwork. The seats have been newly upholstered in cream and pale gold colour structured silk brocade material, finished with matching braiding and traditional hessian backing to the underside. The front of the seat frames features a serpentine design, and the frame in general is decorated with satinwood string inlay throughout, including the backs, arms, seat frame and legs. The couch and chairs rest on cabriole legs to the front and splayed legs to the rear; the cabriole legs also display marquetry inlay to the knees.
These chairs boast a rich brown mahogany colour to the frames. As they boast the original polish, the chairs have a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and the years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to recreate this colour if it has been re-polished.
The chairs would look superb in a variety of rooms, from the hallway to the living room or bedroom. It would certainly grace any home and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely set of furniture.
