This Regency dining chair set was crafted in England around the year 1960. Each chair was carefully assembled from strong solid mahogany, inlaid with satinwood on the backrests, and richly finished for a durable and exquisite appearance. These chairs would make a fine addition to any dining furniture collection!
Classic Regency style
While the Regency period lasted from 1811 to 1830, the distinctive furniture style associated with that time lasted from about 1800 to 1830. During that time, Regency furniture made its mark on English cabinetry forever, incorporating itself into traditions that continue today. These vintage dining chairs bear all of the classic signs–an ensemble of gentle curves (in the backrests and legs) and backrests that are themselves made with a single broad bar across the top with an additional support that runs through the middle. The result is a muted elegance that makes this an exquisitely beautiful dining chair set.
Rich solid mahogany
The original cabinetmaker applied a rich finish to these dining chairs. Just as it has been for centuries, the whole process would have been elaborate, including multiple stages that ended in a fine coat of hand-rubbed wax. The end result is an astonishingly beautiful selection of mahogany that continues to grow more beautiful as time passes and a patina settles into the wood. In that sense, wood furniture of this quality is like a good wine, organically aging and coming into its own. This is the value of lovely antiques like this dining chair set, after all, and certainly these chairs lack neither beauty nor charm, although the wood has inevitably sustained some wear marks here and there.
Luxurious upholstered seats
The wonderfully upholstered seats feature an elegant burgundy velvet accented with gold fluer de lis that contrasts nicely with the dark wood of the chairs. The upholstery is not original, but also is not brand new. Fortunately, it is easy to recover these seats, as the seat frames just lift up.
The seat height of each chair is 18.5″ and the arm height is 27″.
Each of these six dining chairs has significant cosmetic wear around the bottom of the legs where the chairs have rubbed against some brass table foot for many years. This wear has been darkened and finished over but is evident by the grooves left behind. One arm chair shows signs of repair on the front legs at the joints, but remains sturdy. All other chairs remain sturdy as well.
The arm chairs measure 20.75″ wide, 22.75″ deep, and 34″ tall. The sides measure 19″ wide, 21.25″ deep, and 33.5″ tall.
