Description
Pair of walnut 18th Century antique dining chairs by Richard Roberts an extremely rare pair of Walnut Chairs by Richard Roberts, they have high backs of carved walnut, central splat incorporating pierced scrolling decoration. The front legs …. literally are forerunners of the cabriole leg, one step away from a Braganza foot normally associated with earlier furniture designs of the William and Mary period….and a hoof foot as opposed to a claw and ball …. a later design. There is a documented invoice for a set of exactly the same style and period of a set of ten chairs supplied to George I, from walnut trees felled in Windsor Park in 1668 only two years after the great fire of London. I know four plus the set in the Royal Collection and these two. The Backs and legs are identical, although the stretchers are slightly different which makes them incredibly rare. As a true enthusiast of furniture, I’m not sure whether I’ll ever be able to own such chairs as these……. again, bought over 20 years ago from a private collector. These chairs are definitely not 19th or Early 20th century copies of which examples do exist. But they lack the substance, quality of craftsmanship, timber, or overall fluidity of design. Priced realistically compared to what few others that I know of are currently on the market for. Were £10,000 Now £6000 ..... A Huge Saving!
