This is a stunning quality set of four antique English Victorian walnut dining / salon chairs, with newly upholstered seats, circa 1860, in good condition. The chairs are constructed of solid walnut and incorporate decorative balloon shaped backs, with an arched pediment that is pierced with shaped moulded vertical and horizontal rails, incorporating finely carved floral detail. The stuff-over-seats have been newly upholstered in top quality luxurious embroidered structured silk floral upholstery, in a base fawn colour comprising greens, crimson red and gold colours. The seats have also been re-stuffed and re-webbed. The undersides of the seats are finished with traditional hessian backing. The seats are firm and you do sink into them, but at the same time, they are extremely comfortable to sit on. The chairs feature shaped moulded sides and a serpentine front rail, decorated with a floral carved cartouche. The chairs stand on elegant cabriole legs to the front, adorned with fine floral carvings to the knees and scroll toes, and splayed legs to the rear.
The chairs boast a rich dark brown walnut colour. As they boast the original polish, they have a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning they have received.
They would look superb in a variety of rooms from the hallway to the kitchen. The chairs 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 chairs are in good condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges, chair frame and legs, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The stuff-over-seats have been newly upholstered in top quality luxurious embroidered structured silk floral upholstery, in an overall fawn colour comprising greens, crimson red and gold colours. The seats have also been re-stuffed and re-webbed. The undersides of the seats have been finished with traditional hessian backing. The seats are firm and you do sink into them, but at the same time, they are extremely comfortable to sit on. Therefore, the seats are in excellent clean condition. The chair frames retain their original polish and patination, which is why they boast a stunning rich brown colour. The chairs sit firm on the ground and do not wobble. They are well built and heavy; which is a sign of quality; they are solid in joint and ready to use.
