C1770 Pair of Fine Mahogany Chippendale Chairs
18th century mahogany Chippendale chairs are becoming increasingly rare. Even decent 19th century copies are thin on the ground these days. Their popularity is due to the robustness of the design, and the robustness of the construction. They look strong and they are. The large and rather masculine design fits well with contemporary living, as it works well sculpturally in both traditional spare, minimal spaces and and in new, rich, maximalist environments. Made in England about 1770 in mahogany, the George III period chairs are typical of Thomas Chippendale's designs, and feature the Marlborough leg. Carving is kept to a minimum. In great condition, the chairs are upholstered in a lush silk damask.
