Set of Twelve Early 19th Century Regency Mahogany Antique Dining Chairs

Very fine quality set of twelve 19th century Regency mahogany antique dining chairs. This set of chairs are an especially good size being as they are large enough to be comfortable without being too wide. Although they are a very elegant early 19th century design, with slender reeded decoration on the arms, legs and back uprights, in fact they are very solid. The design is interesting as it shows clearly the transition from George III period with both the earlier close reeding on the flat surfaces coupled with the reeded leg so typical of the Regency period. The curved x-frame back design echoes the classical form of furniture discovered in the excavations of the late 18th century. The construction is classic pre-Victorian, with tennon jointed frame, the back rail dovetailed on from above and hand saw marks by the corner stretchers. The later carvers are constructed to the same exceptional level of detail as the ten single chairs. A favourite detail has to be the small carved swags hanging under the top rail, a really lovely finishing touch.

Set of Twelve Dining Chairs Attributed to Gillow

Very fine set of 12 antique dining chairs comprising two carvers and ten single dining chairs. This set of chairs are a generous shape with large sweep to the back lags, deep seat and fine crisp carving. There are many aspects to their design that can be found in the Gillow sketch books. Although they are not stamped, the design is too similar to be a coincidence. Also note the use of Goncalo Alves timber and the 'drop-on' squab onto cane seat so typical of Gillow.

Set of 18 oak antique dining chairs made by Thomas Fox & Co London

Set of 18 oak dining chairs made by Thomas Fox & Co London. These chairs are large and comfortable with padded backs and stuff over seats. They are very robust and have stretchers underneath for added strength. The back legs have a generous curve which extends beyond the back rest of the chair. This makes them much more stable and makes it more difficult for careless dinner guests to tip over backwards when swinging on the back legs.
