C1780 set of 5 (4+1) Hepplewhite Shieldback George III Chairs

$3,250.00 set of 5 (armchair and four sides)

This is a really delightful and high quality set of late 18th century mahogany, Hepplewhite Shieldback dining Chairs. It comprises a carver plus four standards. One of the standards is an excellent copy, indistinguishable by eye. It weighs about half what the originals do, due to the later, faster growing and inferior mahogany. They have drop in seats, easily reupholstered or just recovered. There care some indications the chairs may be of American origin rather than British. The inlay on the legs is not only interesting, but serendipitous, as we have a matching Pembroke dining table for6 with the identical leg inlay. All are delightful examples of the sophistication and elegance of the furnishings at the tail of the 18th century.

Open armchair is 98 cm tall, 56 cm deep and 59 cm wide at the arms.
