A set of four beautifully crafted Biggs Furniture mahogany Empire Style dining chairs, circa first half of the 20th century. These sophisticated dining chairs are fashioned in the empire style and feature a hand crafted Honduran mahogany frame with upholstered slip seats. Known as a leading manufacturer of hand made custom colonial reproductions, Biggs Furniture created this set of empire chairs with a timeless design featuring an exaggerated urn splat that is slightly angled and curved providing supreme comfort. The upholstered padded seat offers a generous platform for sitting and rests gracefully on a set of four angled legs with softly rounded knees. Biggs has always been valued for quality craftsmanship, beautiful proportions and smooth, satiny finishes and these chairs are a perfect example of Biggs construction. With design trends seeming to veer away from traditionalism, these classic chairs can provide a lovely juxtaposition in a modern/contemporary home. These exquisite chairs bring a taste of luxury and will enhance your home or office with an elegant and timeless design. Makers name (BIGGS RICHMOND VIRGINIA) stamped on the underside of each chair.
