Set of Four Highly Carved Chippendale Side Chairs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a very exuberantly carved set of chairs, the design of which relates, we feel, more to Irish furniture than English with the highly decorative carving found throughout. These chairs have a beautiful stance and proportion, see profile image. The chairs are composed of dense heavy mahogany and are fully embellished with carved knees, back splat, etc. The Claw and ball feet are sharply sculpted and attractive. We feel these are 18th century, the legs are fully mortised and tennoned and the dense mahogany typical of first growth material, commonly available at that time.
