Set of Ten French Empire Mahogany Caned Dining Chairs


Glorious set of ten mahogany dining chairs made in the neoclassical French empire taste. The chairs feature decorative bronze mounts and hand-caned seats crafted from radiant-grained mahogany. The frames have an imposing flat crest resembling Greek architecture adorned with an image of a bronze mercury wearing a winged helmet. The gracefully curved back splat conjoined to a bowed seat with bronze rosettes on the corners. Supported by elegant, round and tapered legs in front that end with bronze sabots. Impressive Napoleonic style and design with rare matching 10 chairs. Does not include with pads shown in vignette photo.
