This is a wonderful and rare antique set of six high backed Dutch walnut and floral marquetry dining chairs, Circa 1780 in date.
The chairs have been skillfully crafted from walnut, bear profuse floral marquetry inlaid decoration and are typical of the very best period Dutch marquetry furniture.
The majestic central back splats are inlaid with stunning armorial crests, the craftsmen did everything to make the backs stand out, and as a finishing touch they added on every single splat, a very refined mother of pearl inlay in the form of an exquisite flower, which adds an extra touch of elegance and finesse to these sumptuous chairs.
The luxurious shaped drop-in seats have just been reupholstered in a beautiful golden damask fabric and the chairs are raised on elegant gently curving cabriole legs that terminate in claw and ball feet.
Transform the fine dining experience in your home with this set of dining chairs fit for a king.
In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned, French polished, waxed and reupholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
