Pair of William IV Mahogany Dining Chairs with Drop-In Seats
A singularly attractive pair of mahogany chairs from around the reign of William IV and in very good condition for their age, with a broad back-rest that has outstandingly-carved acanthus leaf medallions to either side, a panelled centre and scroll-carved crest, on rounded supports that are contiguous with the rear sabre legs and are united by an elaborately & decoratively carved mid-rail, the drop-in seats covered in a faded but sound floral tapestry material, over a moulded frieze with roundels at either side, on turned & tapering baluster front legs with bold applied reeding, these beautiful quality chairs will impress in any elegantly furnished home, fully-deserving of the flattering attention they will undoubtedly attract.
Width at Back 47.75cm x Depth 47.75cm (18.75" x 18.75")
Height at Centre of Back 93cm (36.5") & Height of Seat 47.5cm (18.75")
These chairs date from around the 1830s, so you may expect the mature character & patina of considerable age, including various repairs carried out over the years but, otherwise, they are in very good, clean & sound condition and are ready to use in your home.
