circa: 2000 width: 22 height: 38 length: 17 These exquisite solid mahogany Chippendale style dining chairs are hand-made in England and directly imported to our antique furniture store here in Atlanta, GA, USA. The solid mahogany, being treated to an elaborate hand-finishing process that includes distressing and polishing, displays a strikingly rich complexion and distinct grain that are equaled only by the impressive detail shown in the carvings along the crest, lion-head armrests, knees and ball-and-claw feet. Because these dining chairs are solid mahogany, they possess a strength and durability that cheap imitation furniture cannot hope to rival and, moreover, the cabriole legs are particularly strong because of their kneed construction, a characteristic that Queen Anne period craftsmen discovered when they developed this leg. The black upholstered seats complement the solid mahogany beautifully, and as has been customary in antique English chairs for centuries, they are removable for easy cleaning, so there is no need to worry about dirt buildup! These solid mahogany Chippendale style chairs will definitely last for decades and, if treated well, for generations, so making a set of these chairs part of your home furniture collection could very well be a lifetime investment!
