C1880 Set 6 Mahogany Chippendale Chairs

$1,500.00 for robust elegance.

This handsome set of six, solid mahogany, large and sturdy Chippendale style chairs comprises five original antique ones from the late 19th century, and one later 20th century copy made to match. With stuff over seats, the fabric of which is in useable but slightly tired condition, the chairs are comfortable for long dining sessions. The moulded Marlborough legs are joined by the traditional H stretcher and the slightly raised stretcher between the hind legs. The pierced splat is particularly graceful, and features Gothick influence. The original Georgian ones of this design  would have been made about 1760. These antique (over 100 years old) reproductions are well crafted using many of the old, robust construction methods, so they are wonderfully durable, as well as elegant. Furniture styles often have revivals 100 years after the first wave of fashion, which the Americans usefully call "Centennials".  93 cm tall, 52 cm wide and 50 cm deep.
