Description IMPORTANT AND EXTREMELY RARE PAIR OF ENGLISH EIGHTEENTH CENTURY MAHOGANY HALL CHAIRS

NOTE: The combination of high quality mahogany with tulipwood crossbandings is highlighted by the most sumptuous natural patination due to still having the original finish.

NOTE ...The armorial crest shown on these chairs , a demi -bear Sable muzzled Or and the motto "Festina Lente" are believed to be those of the Barnard famiy of Beverley Yorkshire. It seems likely that these chairs demonstrate an early use of the Barnard crest by Leuyns Boldero Barnard followinh his inheritance of the estate of his great uncle HenryBarnard of Beverley and subsequent change of name and arms in 1769-1770.

The estate inherited in 1769 by Leuyens Boldero was at East Hall in Beverley, the house was remodelled in the late 18th century and again at the start of the 19th century when it was re-designed in the Gothic taste and renamed Cave Castle.
