French Empire Set of “Gondole” Chairs


An elegant set of six French Empire gondola dining chairs made of solid Mahogany with a high luster French polish finish. These chairs have very strong frames with a nice seating angle. They are ready for the fabric of your choice! An identical set of six is also available, making a set of 12 in all (17D81). We loved the saber legs in the back, and the curved lines which make for a very comfortable, classic set of chairs.
