This is a lovely set of six Victorian mahogany balloon back chairs with a very attractive shaped back and serpentine reeded front. The chairs are raised on beautiful turned and fluted legs. The frame of the chairs is sturdy and firm with the upholstery of the chairs in heavy weight natural, light cream, oatmeal fabric contrasting perfectly with the beautifully aged mahogany. The upholstery of the seats is in very good condition.
The chairs are in strong and sturdy mahogany with a striking colour and good patina. They have a balloon shaped back, cross stretches with two of the chairs with a shell carved middle and the remaining four with a shield carved in the middle. The carving is of high standard. Two of the chairs – with the shell carving are slightly bigger than the other four and could be used as “side” chairs to be added to the table when the need arise.
This lovely authentic Victorian set of chairs have been cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing and are ready to be used.
The set can be split and the four chairs sold separately. If this is of interest please contact us.
Condition report: As explained above two chairs are slightly larger than the other four. One of the larger chairs has obvious wear of the polish on the left hand in side of the balloon back. We just re-polished it but if you zoom in you can still see this. All of the chairs have some scratches which have been polished successfully thus giving character to the chairs. All of the above are a testimony of the age and use of this very lovely set of chairs which are full of character. Please review the photographs to see the items listed here.
