Declaration

Peter J. Martin & Son has clarified that the set of 6 William IV simulated rosewood dining chairs (A8731 / LA39991) are antique and it's date/period of manufacture is 1835.

Condition

These chairs are in original structurally sound condition. The polish has been revived, but remains attractively faded in places, as is some of the painted grain. There are minor old marks underneath the polish as might be expected on chairs of this age. There is a small amount of damage to the cane seats, but they are perfectly sound enough for regular use. We have highlighted the worst of this in the front rail of the left hand chair in the seat detail photograph. The seats would almost certainly have had loose squab cushions laid on top originally; we would be glad to quote to have these replaced. There is also a small piece of damage where the front rail joins the leg on one of the chairs; there has been an old repair including an iron bracket. While this repair (see detail photograph) is almost certainly unnecessarily over-engineered, as the chair is sound we have elected to leave it in place rather than disturb it!
