SET OF EIGHT ANTIQUE CHIPPENDALE STYLE DINING CHAIRS

Bay Colony Antiques is honored to offer you this exceptionally fine quality set of late 19th century mahogany Chippendale styled dining chairs. The set consists of 2 arm chairs and 6 side chairs. Making these chairs superior than products from Baker, Henkel & Harris, Kittenger, etc is the fact these are indeed antique chairs and not simply nice used furniture. They have well formed saddle shaped seats that are very roomy and comfortable. Triple pieced carved back splats, wonderfully formed Marlborough legs with stretchers connecting them to their rear splayed legs. We honestly can not tell if this was done by the maker on custom order from their original owner or installed later but each middle splat of all the chairs has very high quality steel reinforcements expertly produced by a metal smith at great expense. Our family has a strong background in the metal fabrication industry (Bay State Metals) & we know what work likes this requires. Each fits their respective chair perfectly with no overlaps. We find this addition beautiful and the braces makes it impossible (or better put extremely difficult) to have a guest apply too much weight to the back splats breaking one. It happens very often and usually by someone that does not appreciate the fact they are using a fine quality chair. These chairs are nicely defined by excellent craftsmanship and a very attractive mellowed finish. The fabric on their seats is passable but a bit tired with small staining and evidence of use. We find our clients desire to have their own fabric designs installed. These chairs are in great condition and each bares a tag stating they were made in England. The arm chairs are each 22 1/2" wide from arm to arm and the sides 21 1/2". The saddle seats are 18" high with their dipping to 17" at their very centers. There is nothing as comfortable as saddle formed seats.
