Why we like them
These superb quality, very stylish dining chairs, having a most unusual feature - turned and reeded back uprights, correspond to a design by George Bullock and relate to seat furniture he supplied for Napoleon's use at New Longwood House at St Helena circa 1816. It is a particularly fine and rare design, executed in the finest solid mahogany having glorious natural patina. Two of the chairs are closely matched period examples, with slightly different detailing but undoubtedly from the same workshop, less faded than other six.

The present chairs relate to a design recorded in the 'Tracings by Thomas Wilkinson, from the Designs of the late Mr George Bullock 1820' (City Museums ad Art Gallery, Birmingham, M.3.74, p.22. There are various constructional features, also present on other pieces, associated with the work of George Bullock, such as the rounded tops of the back uprights and convex back seat rail.
Styles / Movements Classical, Regency, Traditional
