Set of Six English 18th Century Chippendale Mahogany Dining Chairs

About

A very fine set of six George III Chippendale period carved mahogany dining chairs of superb quality and generous proportions. An armchair from the same set also available. English, circa 1765 Each having a molded serpentine crestrail, carved with foliate scrolls to each eared corner and an acanthus clasp to the centre, over a pierced vasiform splat of a particularly pleasing broad proportions, carved with acanthus sprays and scrolls and flanked by shaped and molded uprights, above the drop-in seat covered in Chartreuse Damask, within the channelled seat rails, raised on square chamfered and channelled legs united by an H-stretcher. Can be re-covered to buyer's taste. Made of solid and dense well-figured Honduras mahogany, beautifully patinated to a warm golden colour, crisply carved with foliate motifs. Back seat rails stamped IG, which is most likely, the chairmaker’s initials; incised variously with Roman numerals I to VI, with original drop-in seats correspondingly numbered. Similar stamps of the journeymen’s initials are often found on chairs from the workshop of Giles Grendey (1693-1780) of Clerkenwell, London. Fine choice of timber, superb carving and sophisticated design of the present chairs suggest their London origin, a highly skilled craftsman, and a wealthy patron. Fine original untouched condition, warm golden color and superb patina. For a closely related design please see H. Cescinsky, English Furniture of the 18th century, fig. 286, p. 257.
