A super original set of six Victorian walnut balloon back dining chairs by Charles Roodhouse and dating to 1860. With a waisted rounded back and flower detail to the cross rail, these have serpentine fronted seats and stand on cabriole legs.. The seats have at some point been reupholstered in a soft green jacquard fabric with complimentary cording and braiding. Most chairs still retain their Charles Roodhouse label which notes their number, ‘workmans’ name and dates them to March 1860.
These are in very good solid condition with no wobbles, one had a repair in 1971 and was labelled at the time, one has lost a stamen to a flower on the cross rail, and one has some shrinkage to the join in the toprail but still feels firm. The upholstery seems to have been relatively recently done but there are some watermarks to the fabric. The wood has a lovely colour and patina and has been waxed to a shine.

Please feel free to contact us for more information or photos, we have many more photos on file for each item but can only upload a limited number.
When buying it is important appreciate antiques have long histories of daily use and as such, over time they gain minor scratches, marks, knocks, shrinkage splits, signs of old woodworm, lifts and losses to veneer, which combine with care and years of polishing to create an individual character and patina. We describe the main flaws and those that fall outside of this bracket but cannot describe each marks separately and therefore suggest you do take the time to request extra photos. We do offer a 14 day money back guarantee if you are unhappy with your purchase but cannot refund the return shipping cost. If you are not sure please do not buy without clarifying or take the view that the only way to have it as near to new as possible is to have it fully and comprehensively restored.
For delivery we use a small carrier experience in carrying antique furniture. Delivery is usually within 31 days and the carrier will make arrangements with you directly. We can provide contact details of other carriers if required.
