An unusual pair of mahogany hall chairs of the late George III - early Regency period, with urn-shaped backs and oval seats.

 

Possibly Scottish, circa 1810.

 

Why we like them

 

These chairs are made to an extremely unusual neoclassical design, possibly for an oval hall - a fashionable architectural feature in the neoclassical tradition. Their architectural urn-shaped backs are inspired by ancient kraters, used by the Greeks to mix wine and water at their symposia. The georgians were obsessed with the classical Greek culture and often used the motifs seen on the 'Grand Tour' or excavated objects in decoration and design.
