A Pair of George III Gainsborough Open Armchairs

A fine pair of early George III Gainsborough open arm chairs in well carved mahogany of excellent colour and patina, covered in a gold silk damask and with carved shaped arms, standing on cabriole legs carved with acanthus and terminating in a scroll foot with hexagonal blocks and recessed castors.

 

This elegant pair of chairs are strongly influenced by the fashionable rococo designs of Thomas Chippendale and a similar design sketch is illustrated in his designs for seat furniture in The Metropolitan Museum of Art
