Rare Set of Six George II Figured Walnut Dining Chairs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Rare set of six George II dining chairs in figured walnut. Following the classic Queen Anne style, these are clearly Georgian chairs with the shorter backs and flat uprights and splat while the legs are minus the stretchers often associated with the Queen Anne period. Several chairs retain labels affixed to the inner rails stating the provenance of the chairs "belonging to Arklam Hall in the possession of W. Hustler, Esq". The chairs are in extraordinary and sturdy condition. All joints are solid.
