About

The shaped and molded top rail above a feather banded and shaped splat. The shell carved legs with C-scrolls joined by ring turned and baluster stretchers on pointed pad feet. Covered in later 18th century gros point needlework (the needlework restored). The "Chinese back" on these chairs is derived from 16th century Ming Chinese chair patterns that were adopted by English chair makers when chinoiserie was fashionable in the early 18th century. A set of dining chairs in this pattern is at Newhailes, East Lothian and Scotland which retains much of its original early 18th century furniture illustrated in country life 29th January 1987.
