Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this very rare suite of mid Victorian throne dining chairs based on early Jacobean designs with hand painted leather embossed seats with bergere rattan bases. These are pretty much the finest examples of this type of chair I have ever seen. The frames are hand carved from top to bottom, they have Royal crowns at the top back and across the bottom stretcher. They have rattan bergere seat bases and back and come complete with the original leather embossed, hand painted, horse hair padded removable seat covers, these are well over 140 years old and have an amazing patination and wear throughout.I have never seen these chairs supplied with these pads before. In terms of the condition they have been deep cleaned hand condition waxed and polished from top to bottom, all the frames have been checked glued and clamped where required, they will naturally have patination here and there from genuine age and honest use. Some of the berger seat pads have worn and sunk, hence the seat pad covers come in very useful. Some of the leather on the seat pads has work and one or two have heavy wear and or missing patches, this can be professionally restored for the cost price. X 2 Carved chair dimensions.
