These elegant dining chairs are in superb condition and would have been very sought after at the time of manufacture. There had been a revival of interest in early furniture styles at the end of the nineteenth century and start of the twentieth century and this was to continue through most of that century.
The origin is probably British though similar chairs were produced in America. The chairs would have been manufactured by a chair maker and carver. Some of the components such as the seat frame and legs would have been made using large production methods whilst the rear would have received more individual attention and with the use of skilled carvers.
