Pair of George I Irish Cuban Mahogany Carved Side Chairs with ribbon carved knees and web carved pad feet.

The rectangular molded top above a conforming case with three short drawers and a shaped apron, on
foliate-carved well shaped cabriole legs ending in ball and claw feet; excellent color and patination.

  1. Gorgeous! Particularly love the foot detail on those chairs.

    May I just hire you once I move into my Georgian manse (which I shall somehow find in Austin) someday & ask you to decorate everything? Great, thanks!
