They bears the impressed mark of the renowned maker Thomas Turner of Manchester.
This fabulous set of sixteen antique Victorian chairs have been made from hand carved solid walnut, feature elegantly carved top rails with fluted stiles above overstuffed seats, and they are raised on turned baluster supports joined by an H stretcher.
They have been expertly reupholstered in top quality Scottish cow hide which has been hand dyed and antiqued. The elegant brass studding was achieved with close individual studs not by using strips, and each stud was individually hammered in by hand.
It is a fabulous set which would look very grand in any dining or board room.
This set is in really excellent condition having been beautifully restored and reupholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
