Possibly Irish, c. 1820's
Each chair having the scalloped shell carved back, over moulded trapezoidal solid seat, raised on acanthus carved moulded S-scroll legs terminating in block feet.
Gillows of Lancaster supplied ‘4 handsome mahogany hall chairs the backs carved as a shell...’ to the Reverend Holland Edwards of Pennant, North Wales, in 1811. This distinctive shell pattern of the back subsequently became known as the ‘Edwards Pattern’, and was widely reproduced with sabre or turned reeded front supports in 1810's and 1820's.
Notably, these chairs have most unusual scrolling and acanthus carved legs, more commonly seen on console tables, which may indicate that the chairs were designed en-suite with such a table.
