C1805 Spectacular set of 4 George III Drawing Room Chairs

SOLD


This set of four Regency, George III, chairs is very much in the archaeological style of Thomas Hope. The chairs take the basic form of Classical Greek klismos chairs with the sabre legs, fore and aft, joining in one sinuous line on the side profile. The drop-in seat is upholstered in horsehair fabric. The the C shaped part of the styles just above the seat enables a sitter to sit side saddle in the chair and "strike and Attitude" (the Georgian version of Vogueing.). One's thigh fits the space perfectly. The back is enriched with both brass mounts and a carved border. These are very high styler chairs indeed, and we are proud to offer them to the discerning public.
