C1840(?) Australian Cedar Sabre leg Regency Trafalgar Chairs: $300 Each

$300.00 EACH, (were $1250set 3.)


Three Australian Cedar sabre legs chairs. They are probably  later chairs than they appear, but still early 19th century construction. I have been aware when I used to live in Queensland of long sets of chairs where the English Georgian chairs were brought out to India as the family took lucrative civil service or military positions in the sub-continent, and the set of chairs was extended with Indian made Indian Rosewood copies. When the family retired to Australia (who can face the freezing drizzle of England after India?), the set of chairs was then extended again with Australian cedar copies, for the substantial colonial homestead. Our three chairs may have been local additions for an English set, or may simply be from a complete Australian set.

Since we are closing out B&M shop in Clifton Hill at Christmas, much furniture has to go! The shop delivers under 5% of our business, but costs 95% of the overheads. So we will be online only next year. Please come and visit us in person while you may. Now is an excellent time to buy fine furniture at Roy's Antiques Pty Ltd.
