A fine set of 10 Regency mahogany & brass inlaid dining chairs, plus another matching 2 of a later date making a total set of 12. The backs with rectangular top rail, with a central raised and fielded flame mahogany panel bordered by brass stringing. Below the central splat again with a brass strung raised and fielded rectangular panel, joined by elliptical moulded hoops to the moulded curved side rails. The carvers with a classical elegant Regency curved arm support which tightens into a scroll and attaches to the side rail. The seating section is of a comfortable tapering square shape with overstuffed upholstery, the chair supported on front and rear sabre legs and newly covered in a blue damask floral fabric. A lovely set of chairs, the timber being of excellent colour, the seats highly comfortable yet the overall size of the chair remaining compact.
Excellent. Minor old restorations, waxing. The chairs have been fully re-upholstered and covered in a blue floral damask fabric. The 2 later side chairs are an extremely good match and difficult to distinguish from the rest of the period set.
