A Pair Of George III Sheraton Period Mahogany Hall Chairs

Possibly Irish, circa 1790.

The pierced shield-backs with round panels painted with armorial, above the solid compass seats of unusual form, raised on turned tapering front legs and splayed back supports. One chair is inscribed 'Johnson' in chalk to the underside of the seat.

The seats and legs of these hall chairs closely relate to a pair sold by Christie's, 16 December 2010, Lot 3.

Fantastic original condition, beautifully patinated.

Hall chairs were designed, in the words of Sheraton in the Cabinet Dictionary, 1803, to be 'placed in halls, for the use of servants or strangers waiting on business'.
