Consisting of two arm chairs and four side chairs, this set of six antique shield back dining chairs was made in a great mahogany wood. They come from England and we date them to around 1960. Their beautiful color and stunning shape allow them to fit in with most dining tables both formal and informal.
Shield Back Dining Chairs
The overall design of this set is a Chippendale style. The shield shaped back rests are finely decorated with subtle carvings. The front legs are a simple square tapered leg. Meanwhile, the arm rests have a simple fluted detail to them. Each seat front is serpentine shaped which adds a beautiful dimension. Currently, a white, floral pattern upholstery covers each seat.
These antique dining chairs are sturdy and strong enough for everyday use. The upholstery has some minor tiny stains here and there. We feel they are serviceable to use immediately, but also easily changed by an upholsterer. The finish on the chairs is in very good shape. There are some small dings here and there mostly around the legs and feet. Nothing that detracts from the set’s beauty.
The arm chairs measure 22.5″ wide x 22″ deep x 39″ tall and have an arm height of 27″. The side chairs measure 21″ wide x 22″ deep x 39″ tall. All six chairs have a seat height of 19.25″.
