Description

A Delightful Pair Of English Regency Period Mahogany
Hall Chairs Having Elegant Pierced Scrolling Backs Of
Most Unusual Design Above Well Figured Seats Raised
On Finely Turned Legs
(The original purpose of hall chairs were to be used in the
hallway of a house and their function was for the guests to
take a seat on arrival whilst waiting for the owner to come
and greet them. Hence the wooden seats, with the theory
that more often than not people would come in from outside
with wet and dirty clothes, meaning any kind of fabric finish
would need recovering with far too much regularity. Hall chairs
come in many different shapes, sizes and qualities, from the
mid-18th century right through to the early 20th century but have
often obtained significant damage through the years due to their
more often than not delicate design and of course the fact they
were used with great regularity by a great number of people who
didn't actually own them. These however are in excellent condition
and are an example from the Regency period of most unusual design.
They retain a warm colour and patina and they are very much
fit for their original purpose and more. The design is most decorative
and elegant and would certainly add to any room which they are
placed in.)
