English, c. 1870
Stamped by the maker; A.R.H. and numbered '2762'; some retaining the manufacturer's original labels, 'WRIGHT AND MANSFIELD, 104 NEW BOND STREET, W.'
Each with a canopy bead carved crest rail, centered with a wheatsheaf, above a splat formed of three pierced uprights, channeled and carved with foliage; the stuff-over serpentine seat, raised on fluted tapering front legs terminating in spade feet, and sabre back supports.
Heavy and dense mahogany, superb colour and patina. The chairs' leather covers are supposedly original, some in poor condition. The original upholstery can be restored or replaced to buyer's taste with new leather, silk or horsehair fabric at cost.
During the second half of the 19th century the partnership of Alfred Wright, a cabinet maker and Thomas Mansfield, a decorator became hugely successful. The company pioneered the revival of the 18th century furniture, making the finest quality copies of the best period designs, often mistaken later for the originals. Wright and Mansfield had ceased trading by 1886.
A closely related pair of chairs is known, stamped Gillows, Lancaster.
