Here is a fine quality set of eight English antique Victorian solid mahogany spoon / balloon back dining chairs, circa 1850, with newly upholstered stuff-over seats, in excellent condition. The chairs are designed with an attractive spoon-shaped back, comprising of a curved, moulded top rail, connected to shaped side supports. The back also features a foliate carved curved horizontal splat. The chairs feature stuff-over seats, which have been professionally upholstered in new top-quality taupe colour structured cotton material, finished with matching braiding and traditional hessian backing to the underside. The moulded seat frame is raised on fine quality ring turned & reeded tulip carved front legs, with sabre rear legs to the rear. This set of chairs boasts the original polish; therefore, they have a fantastic depth of colour and patination, displaying a lovely deep rich red and brown colour.
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, we charge £45 per seat.
The chairs feature a deep rich red and brown mahogany 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. This rich original colour cannot be re-created if the chairs have been re-polished.
These 19th Century dining chairs would look would look good anywhere, either in a formal setting or for everyday use. They would certainly grace any home or office and are a great investment, as they are extremely functional.
These spoon / balloon back dining chairs are in excellent overall condition. This is a true set of chairs (i.e. not matched together from other sets of similar chairs). Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the chair frames and legs, but nothing significant considering the age of the chairs. There have been old repairs to the back of two of the six chairs (see photos), but this does not detract from the overall look of the chairs and importantly, does not affect them structurally at all – they are solid in joint. The stuff-over seats have been newly upholstered to a professional standard. The upholstery is therefore clean, free from wear and 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. The chairs boast the original polish; therefore, they boast a fantastic patination and colour, which cannot be recreated if the chairs were re-polished. The chairs are solid in joint and ready to be used.
