Set of Eight Antique English Chippendale Style Chairs, Original Painted Decoration, circa 1890

A set of eight antique English Chippendale style chairs each retaining their original painted decoration circa 1890. Please notice the intricate manner in which the artist painted these chairs to create an illusion of depth on the flat surfaces not only on the front, but on the sides as well. Each of the chairs stand on four square tapered legs that are joined by a stretcher and reflect the same painted motif. The back of each chair springs upward with flared framing that encloses three vertical slats with a boldly arched top rail featuring a pierced opening centered on a symmetrical flourish. It is truly marvellous to see the ingenious method the artist employed to shift the eye back and forth over the surface of the chairs. Because of the large scale of these chairs, they possess a sculptural presence as well as being extremely comfortable. The striped silk upholstered has been especially chosen by the original owners to complement the gorgeous painted decoration. These are a truly unique set of antique chairs and will energize the design of a wonderful dining room.
