Set of Six Georgian Hall Chairs

Fine set of six George III period mahogany hall chairs, the shield shaped backs with inset painted heraldic devices, on plank seats, the trestle bases with arched silhouette feet joined by cross brace, the whole with good rich color and patination. The design for these English hall chairs was derived from the Italian renaissance Sgabello chairs, which were occasionally brought back from Italy by gentlefolk returning from their grand tours.
