About

This set of 12 federal era chairs is comprised of two armchairs and ten side chairs. French polished mahogany frames have slip seats, eleven of which are covered in woven horse hair. Finely reeded with turned rosettes and figured mahogany veneered back rail. The set is a de-accession from a well-known museum house. The arm chairs vary slightly in size and detail from the side chairs but appear to have been made by the same cabinet maker. The set is heavy and sturdy - able to safely seat your largest relative at holiday dinners!
