A stunning set of six Regency period mahogany and caned dining chairs, c.1820. The chairs are after Gillows' 'Edwards' Library Pattern' design (see S. Stuart, Gillows of Lancaster and London 1730 - 1840, London, 2008, vol. I, pp.216-218). Furniture maker's mark of the letter 'H' formed in dots to the underside of each top rail.
Each chair is crisply carved and finely made with a carved tablet top rail above rope twist uprights flanking a pierced and carved roundel horizontal splat with a moulded front rail, caned seat and sabre legs.
All chairs have historic restorations, some more than others. The restoration work is of high quality and the chairs have clearly been very well looked after and maintained. Two cane seats are later than the others. Each chair has a later bespoke-made buttoned cushion in a sage green. A few buttons are absent - two loose buttons are present but as they are more faded than the cushions themselves, they are more conspicuous in place than not, but they will be provided with the set for completeness.
A really attractive set that presents extremely well.
