English 18th Century Pair George II Queen Anne Mahogany Chairs

Pair of Irish George II Mahogany Chairs


Pair of George II period side chairs in solid Cuban mahogany, of generous proportions.

Irish, c. 1730's

Very fine quality chairs, of a rare and attractive form, having the well-curved backs with the finely paper-scrolled and shaped top rails, over the elegant vasiform splats, above the padded drop-in seats, within the moulded seat rails, having the rounded corners and attractive wavy aprons, raised on particularly well-shaped cabriole front legs, carved with fine C-scrolls to the knees, and terminating in pad feet, and well-splayed and rounded back supports, united by the turned stretchers.


Excellent antique condition, superb colour and patination. Minor historic restorations. The drop-in seat frames possibly of a later date.

Susan Stuart, Gillows of Lancaster and London, 1744-1830; pp. 30-31
Christie's, 6 April 2000, London, Lot 211.
