This is a fine quality pair of Georgian elm dining chairs, circa 1780, of rural provenance, in the style of the Chippendale period, with newly upholstered seats, in good original condition. It’s unusual to see Chippendale style chairs constructed from elm; we believe they were designed for a country / rural home; rather than a fine townhouse. The chairs are constructed of solid elm and feature a shaped top rail, with simple pierced central fretwork back splats, flanked by vertical rails, featuring a drop-in seat within the seat frame. The seats have been newly upholstered in top quality heavy duty deep chili red ribbed satin upholstery. The seats have been finished with tradition hessian backing to the undersides. Therefore, the seats are in excellent and clean condition, with no marks. The seats are well padded and firm but comfortable at the same time – you do not sink into the seat. If you do not like the fabric, we will recover the seats in a fabric of your choice (we charge £30 labour per seat). The pair of Georgian elm dining chairs feature sabre legs to the rear, united by ‘H’ stretchers for additional strength. This is a true set of chairs; they have not been matched together from other sets of chairs.
