Set of Twelve Klismos-form Dining Chairs, about 1820
Mahogany, with ebony stringing to crest rails (secondary woods: ash and poplar; slip seats, poplar)
33 1/2 in. high, 18 5/8 in. wide, 19 3/4 in. deep (overall)
There is some very slight variation in the leafy forms in the carving at the ends of the back splats, eight being of one design and four being of another. This kind of variation is commonplace on sets of chairs of this period and is extremely difficult to detect.
