This very closely matching set of six late 18th century chairs have lived together for very many years, possibly since they were new, but certainly since they were bought in 1991 from an antique shop in Kent. Enjoyed for very nearly a quarter of a century the owners, who incidentally paid £1800 for them, only parted with them upon moving abroad. Due to present fads, such as the ridiculous 'shabby chic' and sterile 'industrial look', genuinely old and scarce furniture of this ilk has fallen from favour amongst those more concerned with fashion than much else so for the rest of us opportunities have arisen.
Despite a few old repairs and, in one chair, some long ago dispelled woodworm these beautiful chairs, that have for over 200 years seated generations of diners, should give many years service and much pleasure to their new owners - especially at £725. (three seats were re-rushed not too long ago whilst the remainder are soldiering happily on - see one photo for comparison)
