Set of 8 Chippendale Period Dining Chairs
A fine set of 8 George III Chippendale period carved mahogany dining chairs; the camel back above a carved and pierced interlaced splat flanked by outscrolling arms above a drop-in seat and raised on square chamfered legs united by an H-stretcher. Constructed from well figured Cuban mahogany these chairs are crisply carved with acanthus leaves to the top rail and splat.
Interestingly In more modern times a Dining Room was usually adjacent to the kitchen for convenience in serving, however, in medieval times it was often on an entirely different floor level.
Historically a dining room was furnished with a rather large dining table and a number of dining chairs; the most common shape being a rectangular dining table housing two armed end chairs and an even number of un-armed side chairs along the long sides of the table.
Over the years fashion and and discerning tastes of wealth and status created the need for such fine pieces as these examples and due to the quality of materials and designs used, they continue to remain exceptionally popular today.
