Pair of George III Mahogany Hall Chairs


Product Description

Circa 1760, good pair of early George III mahogany hall chairs. The chairs with their solid scooped Heraldic shaped back, above the shaped seat with a scooped oval panel in the centre. At the front of the legs there is an oval panel similar to that but on a smaller scale and cut out bracket feet. The back legs are similarly designed but splayed outwards. Similar chairs can be seen in the Dumfries House Catalogue, Lots No. 2 – 4. Inspired by Italian Renaissance ‘sgabello prototypes’, this model of ‘back-stool’ enjoyed enduring popularity during the 18th century. Sometimes these chairs come with a Heraldic shield painted on the back splat.



  • Size 98cm high x 44cm wide x 52cm deep.
