Description

These are a superb pair of mid 19th Century English Victorian antique giltwood armchairs attributed to Holland & Sons. The arched rectangular shaped back above a sprung seat and rising padded armrests, each having carved scrolled terminals to the front with strapwork and acanthus leaf decoration finishing on lappet terminals. Supported by four recessed panelled square sections above a foliate carved and guilloche decorated square tapering legs, terminating on the original brass castors.

We strongly believe these chairs to have been made by the famous Royal cabinet makers Holland & Sons. There are stylistic affinities with examples designed by the Victorian artist and sculptor Alfred Stevens (1817-1875). He produced a suite which was manufactured by the royal furniture-makers Holland & Sons for the Dining Room at Dorchester House in London, one of the grandest and most lavishly furnished houses of mid-19th century London, commissioned by the great Victorian patron of the arts, Robert Staynor Holford.

Further Information: For related chairs with the corresponding design please see the set of 8 chairs designed by Alfred Stevens supplied and stamped by Holland and Sons, Christie’s, London, 26 March 2013, Lot 321, also two pairs attributed to Holland & Son, one pair sold Christie's London, Michael Liptich II Collection, 4 October 2001, lot 24 and the other pair Sothebys, London 21 March 2013, Lot 184.Recently a set of 8 dining chairs sold at Sothebys London 23 May 2017, lot 322 of very similar form attributed to Holland & Sons.

These are a superb pair of rare and decorative giltwood chairs of very elegant design by a one of the leading cabinet makers of the 19th Century, making these desirable to any interior designer, collectors or private individual with a discerning eye.

Provenance:-
Part of the collection of late Ronnie Kirkwood and George Dixon.
