Late 18th Century George III Mahogany Hepplewhite Shield-Back Arm Chairs - a Pair

Chairish

Sorry, this product is no longer available on Dering Hall.

Pair of Late 18th C. George III Carved Mahogany Shield-Back Hepplewhite Arm Chairs. Beautiful patina. Upholstery appears original. Cushion filled with original feats of horsehair. This suite bears witness to the far reaching influence of the English cabinetmaker, George Hepplewhite (d.1786), in Europe. Hepplewhite’s widow, Alice, first published the Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Guide, comprising 300 plates, in 1788. See plate 4. Their shield-shaped backs ornamented with drapery are related to a number of designs published in the late 18th century by A. Hepplewhite & Company in The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Guide, first published in 1778. For a similar example of the chair back see The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Guide, George Hepplewhite, Dover Publications, Inc., New York, plate 4.
