This set of six Queen Anne style dining chairs was crafted in England around the year 1960. They are made of solid walnut with burl walnut backrests and upholstered seats.
Classic Queen Anne dining chairs
These dining chairs were carefully crafted using several distinctive materials and techniques that are characteristic of Queen Anne style. Although the period lasted for only about the first 15 years of the 18th century, the style of that period was later taken up at the close of the Victorian period. In these dining chairs, it is reflected in the gently double arched backrests whose “pierced” design resembles a pair of wings framed by aged burl walnut. The armrests are likewise sloped and curved to reflect the shape of the backrests. The legs, too, are curved in a classic cabriole design. The overall effect is a stunning set of Queen Anne dining chairs!
