A very fine set of six George III Chippendale period carved mahogany dining chairs of superb quality and generous proportions.

English, c. 1765

Each having a molded serpentine crestrail, carved with foliate scrolls to each eared corner and an acanthus clasp to the center, over a pierced vasiform splat of a particularly pleasing broad proportions, carved with acanthus sprays and scrolls and flanked by shaped and molded uprights, above the drop-in seat covered in vintage green velvet, within the channeled seat rails, raised on square chamfered and channeled legs united by an H-stretcher.

Made of solid and dense well-figured Honduras mahogany, beautifully patinated to a warm golden colour, crisply carved with foliate motifs. Back seat rails stamped IG, which is most likely, the chairmaker’s initials; incised variously with Roman numerals I to VI, with original drop-in seats correspondingly numbered.

Similar stamps of the journeymen’s initials are often found on chairs from the workshop of Giles Grendey (1693-1780) of Clerkenwell, London. Fine choice of timber, superb carving and sophisticated design of the present chairs suggest their London origin, a highly skilled craftsman, and a wealthy patron.

Fine original untouched condition, warm golden colour and superb patina.
