A Superb Set of Eight Irish George II Dining Chairs
Crafted in heroic proportions from finely figured, dense mahogany. The beautifully carved ribbon backs, also 'Spooned Shaped,' descend to slip seats resting on veneered seat rails with cabriole front legs carved with acanthus at the knees and terminating in classic Dublin feet. The rear legs are rounded and swept back.
The entire set of pegged construction.
The seven side chairs measuring 39-7/8"
height at the back and the single "Master's"
chair measures 43-3/8" height at the back.
Ireland, circa 1750
