    A very fine set of six George III Chippendale period carved mahogany dining chairs of superb quality and generous proportions.

     
    English, circa 1765
     
    Each having a molded serpentine crestrail, carved with foliate scrolls to each eared corner and an acanthus clasp to the centre, over a pierced vasiform splat of a particularly pleasing broad proportions, carved with acanthus sprays and scrolls and flanked by shaped and molded uprights, above the drop-in seat covered in vintage green velvet, within the channelled seat rails, raised on square chamfered and channelled legs united by an H-stretcher.
     
    Made of solid and dense well-figured Honduras mahogany, beautifully patinated to a warm golden colour, crisply carved with foliate motifs. Back seat rails stamped IG, which is most likely, the chairmaker’s initials; incised variously with Roman numerals I to VI, with original drop-in seats correspondingly numbered.
     
    Similar stamps of the journeymen’s initials are often found on chairs from the workshop of Giles Grendey (1693-1780) of Clerkenwell, London. Fine choice of timber, superb carving and sophisticated design of the present chairs suggest their London origin, a highly skilled craftsman, and a wealthy patron.
     
    Fine original untouched condition, warm golden colour and superb patina.
