This is a fine quality set of four antique English Victorian mahogany balloon back dining chairs, with newly upholstered structured taupe & pale gold chenille upholstery seats, circa 1870, in excellent original condition. The chairs incorporate a curved moulded “balloon back” top rail. The horizontal splats below are constructed from intricately carved horizontal sections. The drop-in-seats have been newly upholstered in a top-quality structured silk taupe & pale gold chenille material. The seats are firm but comfortable to sit on; they do not sag. The undersides of the seats incorporate new hessian backing. The moulded frame are raised on turned legs to the front and splayed legs to the rear. These chairs are solid, well-constructed and heavy – a sign of quality.
The chairs boast a rich dark red-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.
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.
