A set of ten beechwood side or dining chairs in the Louis XVI manner, the oval backs and seats with carved detail and caning, all raised on turned carved and fluted legs, headed with paterae.

This long set of side chairs was made in the nineteenth century. The model is distinctly late eighteenth century French in design and such chairs would have been placed around the walls of a large room in an important house, being brought into use for dining or as salon chairs in a drawing or music room when required for social functions.

Beech wood was a popular timber for carving in the eighteenth and nineteenth century. its structure lends itself well to this technique. It is unusual to find such a long set and in such good condition.
