Description Presenting a gorgeous set of late 19th century English mahogany chippendale style dining chairs.

Made of solid mahogany with beautifully carved ball and claw feet on the front of each.

Set of 8 – 6 dining chairs and 2 Carvers/Captain’s chairs.

Gorgeously upholstered in a gold and scarlet silk damask fabric and each chairs has golden decorative tassels to the rear.

Probably made in England circa 1880, in the late 19th century. They are most definitely NOT a mid-late 20th century set. They have a nice patina consistent with our opinion on age but do not have the patina of 18th century period pieces. They are made of solid mahogany and not compressed wood as is often the case with 20th Century reproductions. The patina is ever so slightly different (darker) on some, again, indicating age.

They have a nice and simple lyre shaped back-splat and are not of the ‘fussier’ Chippendale variety. This simplicity, in our opinion makes them very desirable, functional, durable and sturdy !

The back legs are simple and curved.

They are all in superb condition.

They were re-upholstered in the late 20th century.

Provenance: From a Wealthy Dallas Collector.

Dimensions: Each Side Chair is 39.25 inches Tall, 22.25 inches Wide, 17 inches Deep with a Seat Height of 20 inches, Each Carver/Captains Chair is 40 inches Tall, Depth of 17.5 inches and 24 inches Wide with a Seat Height of 20 inches.

Thomas Chippendale (1718–1779) was born in Otley in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England in June 1718. He became a cabinet-maker in London, designing furniture in the mid-Georgian, English Rococo, and Neoclassical styles. In 1754 he published a book of his designs, titled The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director, upon which success he became renowned. The designs are regarded as representing the current British fashion for furniture of that period and are now reproduced globally. He was buried 16 November 1779, according to the records of St Martin-in-the-Fields, in the cemetery since built upon by the National Gallery. Chippendale furniture is much valued; a padouk cabinet that was offered for auction during 2008 sold for £2,729,250.

After working as a journeyman cabinet maker in London, during 1754, he became the first cabinet-maker to publish a book of his designs, titled The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director. Three editions were published, the first in 1754, followed by a virtual reprint in 1755, and finally a revised and enlarged edition in 1762, by which time Chippendale’s illustrated designs began to show signs of Neoclassicism. Chippendale had considerable competition during his active years, most notably by Ince and Mayhew.
