A rare set of eighteen 19th Century mahogany square back dining chairs attributed to Gillows of Lancaster. Similar to Scottish brander-back dining chairs each has a square moulded back with four splats and on square tapering legs which are outsplayed to the back and joined by an ‘H’ and back stretcher, the drop-in seats are upholstered in dark tan hide leather, whilst some have been recovered in a closely matching old imitation leather, the frames beneath the seats are stamped with the workman’s initials ‘FS’, ’FB’ or ‘EB’ and a number. All in solid mahogany, marks consistent with age and use including some dents to the rear of one on the slats and a repair to the seat on another, all solid with no movement in the joints, the drop-in style of set is more easily recovered if required..
Square-back dining chairs became one of Gillows most popular designs when they were introduced c.1790, this set is likely a variation dating to the early 19th century.
20 1/8in wide x 18 1/2in deep x 35 3/4in high (51cm x 47cm x 91cm)
Seat height - 18in (45.5cm)

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.
