This pair of antique, late 18th century, Hepplewhite style chairs have an open shield, pierced splat back and are indicative of the resurgence of the Neoclassicism in the 18th century. The seat is upholstered with a warm pink velvet which is a lovely contrast to the dark wood. They are possibly Italian or Swedish in origin.
