A well cared for matching set of eight English mahogany dining chairs c. 1910, in the early Chippendale style. These tall, wide, comfortable, and well appointed chairs consists of four arms and four sides. The plumes are hand tooled, as are the scrolls under the shoulders of each chair, and the other features of the pierced back splat. Rarely are four arms found with a set of eight chairs, which allows more flexibility in how the chairs are positioned in the dining room. These custom chairs are joined with mortise and tenon, and the medial stretcher is dovetailed into the side stretchers. This, coupled with the wide arching backs creates great stability and retards loosening. The wood is fine heavy Dominican mahogany unlike the "cigar box" mahogany used in many sets of chairs. The seats are beautifully recovered in a red feaux leather and trimmed in real brass tacks nailed in individually. The chairs are in overall excellent condition with only the slightest sign of usage associated with age. There is no damage or repair to any of the chairs. The armchairs are 38.7"high, and the side chairs are 37.4"high.
