Pair of 19thC Mahogany Bar Back Chairs with Drop-In Seats
A fine pair of William IV or early Victorian mahogany chairs with modern upholstery and in very good condition, with sharply carved 'paddle'-shaped back-rests, decorated with acanthus leaf scrolls, the bar back similarly modelled with scrolls and a central fan, on shaped uprights that are contiguous with the rear legs, sabre front legs and drop-in upholstered seat pad, covered in a cotton fabric with diagonal mesh design in grey, gold & cream, with loose cushion pads for your back, covered in a matching fabric and secured to the back-rest with straps and 'velcro' tabs, these elegant dining chairs will impress in the most elegantly-appointed of homes, whether period-furnished or more contemporary in style, fully-deserving of the envious attention of your guests.
NB: I am also selling a pair of slightly later chairs which are upholstered 'en-suite' and came from the same home.
O/All Width 46cm x Depth 49.5cm (18" x 19.5")
Height to Centre of Back 86cm (33.75") & Height to Seat 47.5cm (18.75")
These chairs date from the period 1830-50, so you may expect the mature character & patina of considerable age, together with minor wear & tear commensurate with normal use, including a small loss to the foot of one front leg but the upholstery is quite new and the frames solid so, in all other respects, they're in very good, clean & sound condition and ready to use in your home.
