Handcrafted from rare solid mahogany and beautifully upholstered in cream linen, this set of four high back dining chairs will grace any dining table.

These four high back dining chairs have been superbly upholstered in cream linen for a comfortable and indulgent dining experience. They have been masterfully crafted in England from solid mahogany, featuring elegantly arched fully padded high backs and generously padded seats, offering both style and comfort. The chairs are raised on beautifully turned and carved legs, united by decorative 'H' tied stretchers. The full set comprises twelve side chairs of the same design.

Carolean style (Carolus means Charles in latin) is also known as Restoration style and refers to the decorative art period that was popular in England from the restoration of the monarchy in 1660 to the late 1680s. The severity of the puritan Cromwellian style was replaced by a taste for magnificence and opulence and the introduction of Dutch and French artistic influences. These are evident in the furniture of the time and exemplified by this set of four high back dining chairs, which feature the opulent style so typical of the Carolean period.

The timeless elegance of these four high back dining chairs - or indeed the full set of 12 - will complement any dining table and the high backs and generous upholstery will provide you and your guests with an elegant and comfortable dining experience. Without doubt they will provide a fascinating talking point for your guests and add a spectacular sense of occasion to any gathering.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)

was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.

While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.

Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.

The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).

Satinwood

is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.

The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.

It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
