Set of Eight English Carved and Inlaid Oak Dining Chairs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

19th Century set of eight English dining chairs having two armchairs and six side chairs. The chairs are made of solid oak with acanthus carved side and top rails surrounding a marquetry inlaid backsplat and crowned by a carved cherub. The chairs rest on rosette carved and turned legs with three H stretchers making each chair's frame extremely sturdy and solid. A very charming feature of the chairs is the 19th Century embossed leather chair seats bearing the original gold foil stamp by Frank Giles and Co. Upholstery, Kensington. Although the leather bears some wear/patina from use and a few splits, it could be beautifully restored. The embossed motifs include bees, cherubs with bee's wings, squirrels, flora, and other fauna. The armchairs measure 21.5 inches wide x 19.5 inches deep x 44 inches tall with a seat height of 20 inches. The sidechairs measure 19.75 inches wide x 17.5 inches deep x 42 inches tall with a seat height of 19 inches.
