C1810 Pair of Mahogany Regency George III Sabre Leg Chairs

$550.00 the handsome pair.


In the Classical Revival style popular in the turn of the 18th to 19th centuries, this pair of chairs mimics the klismos form of Ancient Greece. The sweeping sabre legs and concave bar back are characteristics of the Regency style. The drop in seat was upholstered by us in 2018, and we have just bought these back again, having last sold them in November 2018. The bar back is veneered in richly figured mahogany, which is reprised in a band of figured mahogany in the splat. The top is ornamented by a cresting of anthemion (honeysuckle flowers). The continuous sweep from the toprail down the stile, along the seat rail and down the leg is emphasised by a continuous "double D" moulding. Ergonomically designed, the concave back and padded seat provide perfect support and comfort. The upholstery is smart grosgrain stripe of green, purple and gold, the New Orleans colours of Mardi Gras, coincidentally!
