There are two of these rare chairs, but they may be bought individually or as a pair. As is usual with these chairs there are signs of old woodworm activity, not now active. One is in excellent condition, firm and ready to use, with a small old repair to the back; one is equally sturdy but needs restoration to the front seat rail where old woodworm damage has caused the cane to detach. (see image 11) A fillet let into the rail and re-caning are needed, also there is a small repair to the cane in the back (not visible from the front). Thus this chair is 595, the other is 995. NOTE: red velvet cushions come with these chairs. The cushion for the chair with damage to the seat has a loose wooden seat beneath the cushion, thus the chair can be used. (See images 12-14)
Magnificent and rich, the quality and quantity of the carving is superb. Both are of excellent colour with a good patina. These chairs, with their glorious sculptural quality, are a joy to look at.
DIMENSIONS: 50 inches tall, 23 inches wide, 29 inches deep (including the rake to the backs), seat height 18 inches.
PROVENANCE: Sussex country house collection.
