These are a very important and substantial set of chairs, they have been fully restored to include being stripped back to the bare frames, all the timber has been washed back and French polished , they have then been resprung using the original period coil sprung bases, new webbing fitted, then upholstered with premium Italian cattle grade fully aniline plain natural leather which has been individually hand nail tacked in place using antiqued studs, lastly hand dyed six times and antiqued to give it this one off cigar brown colour.
 
These chairs have been on a journey as mentioned and they are true investment pieces, ready to serve the new owner for decades to come. Usually, I wouldn’t take dining chairs through such an expensive process however the carving to the legs is so sublime they warranted the treatment, I have never seen such beautiful Lion’s mains and terminating with hairy paws with recessed castors, these are simply put the finest dining chairs on the market anywhere in the world today you can buy.
