This is a simply gorgeous set of ten Antique English Georgian Chippendale Style dining chairs from the late 20th Century, crafted by the furniture firm of E.J. Victor. They feature pierced splat-work, topped by a scrolled crest and wonderful fretwork molding. Eight side chairs and two arm chairs, both of which have wonderful flowing arms that curl in carved handholds, each flanking a trapezoidal slip seat permanently affixed to the frame. The chairs have veneered aprons and rest over cabriole carved legs with acanthus knees curling in scrolled toes. The back legs have a rear cant with pointed flat feet. The underside has a brass plaque noting they are part of the Newport Historic Collection and another plaque from E.J. Victor.
They are in simply stunning condition, each entirely hand carved and crafted like all E.J. Victor furniture. The company was started in 1990 and immediately began producing elegant furniture reproductions of benchmade quality. Works of the Newport Historic Collection by this firm maintain their value and are an excellent investment, garnering high four and low five figure prices at auction houses even a few short years after their production. Sturdy and strong throughout with incredibly thick solid wood secondary construction, these are a set that are built to last.
