This a fine handmade pair of English, George 111rd, Sheraton period hardwood, possibly red walnut dining or side chairs with good carved detail and reupholstered drop in seats, dating to the late 18th century, circa 1790.
The chairs have many further quality features;
* Bow fronted seat rail
* Incised detail to broad top cresting rail
* incised reeded detail to back uprights.
* Finely decorated cross rail with carved geometric lattice work having central rectangle inlaid with feature hardwood, crossbanded edge and boxwood line inlay.
The chairs are made of solid hardwood, possibly red walnut, with the timber carefully chosen for its figured grain pattern as per the top rail. The legs are square in section, the rear legs raking slightly outwards and the front legs tapering with the legs having four stretchers between in an "H" arrangement for added strength .
The drop in seat has been reupholstered in a complimentary fabric which could easily be changed if required.
These elegant chairs have developed a lovely soft patination and depth of color where they have been used and polished in well over 200 years of use.
Note: We have a second pair of these chairs and an armchair listed of the same type and
