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.
