Set of Six Regency Painted Klismos Chairs

About

An elegant set of six English Regency period Klismos chairs, brass-mounted and faux-bois decorated to simulate Calamander, with squab cushions, circa 1820. These faux-bois painted and cane-seated chairs, with Grecian boldly curved legs and brass ornaments, are designed in the French antique fashion popularised by Thomas Hope and Henry Holland. Their superbly curved 'Sabre' legs derive from the Greek 'Klismos' chair, an epic timeles design, already popular in circa 400 BC, while the lustrous black japanning evoke the then newly fashionable fascination with Ancient Egypt.
