The chairs are designed with an attractive “balloon” shaped back, comprising of a foliate-carved inner top rail, connected to shaped side supports. The back also features an ornate foliate carved central horizontal splat. The chairs feature stuff-over seats, which have been professionally upholstered in new top quality faun, green & magenta colour embroidered structured silk brocade material in a floral pattern, finished with matching braiding and traditional hessian backing to the underside.
The chairs stand on cabriole front legs with foliate carving at the feet, and 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 rich red and brown colour.
