The set comprised ten side chairs and two armchairs that have been skillfully crafted from walnut and bear profuse floral marquetry inlaid decoration. They are typical of the very best period Dutch marquetry furniture.
The majestic chairs are inlaid with stunning armorial crests, the craftsmen did everything to make the chairs stand out, and they are smothered in floral and foliate marquetry decoration with bouquets, urns and butterflies which add an extra touch of elegance and finesse to these sumptuous chairs.
The luxurious shaped drop-in seats have just upholstered in a beautiful cream fabric and the chairs are raised on elegant gently curving cabriole legs that terminate in claw and ball feet.
