Description
Two elegant dining room hardwood chairs of Chippendale design with seats covered in black leather. The chairs have a gracefully curved and crested rail that is a separate piece which is glued to the slat back and the curved back frame. The slat backs with a lyre-shaped (five cut-out slats from one piece of wood) centre is joined to the frame and the curved rail. The chair seat is narrower at the back becoming wider as it gets to the end so the legs are spaced further apart at the front. The Marlborough-style tapered legs have an H-frame stretcher about three-quarters from the top of the drop-in seat. The leather covered seats have a wood frame (no centre) that fits into rabbets, horsehair filling, and an undercover in muslin cotton fabric. The four corner support joints underneath the seat are pieces of wood nailed onto the seat; also a piece of wood nailed and screwed onto both sides of seat bottom.
