C1815 Pair Brass Inlaid Regency Sabre Leg Chairs

$1,450.00 the ravishing pair

This pair of elegant Regency chairs features the silhouette, including the sabre legs, of a classical Greek chair of antiquity. The brass inlay, mortise and tenon joints are also of the ancient world. The only modern, post-renaissance, feature is the nailed down upholstery on the drop-in seats, and the choice of Brazil Rosewood as the model for the woodgraining . The beech chairs have been painted with India ink and a feather to simulate the Brazil Rosewood that was no longer readily available from the New World due to the war with Napoleon's Empire.

There is a small loss to the brass inlay.
