Circa 1840, good set of 4 Continental carved mahogany hall chairs. The stylish backs are in the form of Heraldic shields with open fretwork centres and carved lions on the upright. Two of the chairs have the carved lions wearing crowns. The seats have canted corners and paper labels beneath them saying they have come from Holyrood Palace (some damaged) and at the front a further label stating the chairs were obtained from The Marquis of Breadalbane's Apartment at Holyrood Palace May 16th, 1880. All stands on 4 substantial turned bulbous legs united by a shaped X frame cruciform stretcher with a large finial in the centre, and finishing on squat bun feet. The chairs are stylish with excellent historical provenance.
