An elegant pair of George II early Chippendale "Director" period walnut side chairs, retaining excellent colour and patina throughout. The backs with a gentle serpentine shaped top rail with crisp leaf carved detailing along the top; the spat formed of four solid rectangular supports, curved and sweeping upwards in a vase shape, forming a cloverleaf. The seats are over-stuffed and of a tapering rectangular shape, recently re-covered in superb bronze silk damask. The solid walnut cabriole legs support the chair with trailing acanthus leaf carving to the knees and terminating in a ball and claw foot. The back legs of a simpler design, still beautifully curved and tapering down to a rectangular pad foot. Wonderful quality and elegant simplicity throughout.
