We bought these whilst on a buying trip in Norfolk where we bought them at small dealers in Sheringham. They are the ultimate dining chair, sturdy and comfortable and built to last. These would have been hand crafted to the original Chippendale designs and are offered in perfect condition ready for home use right away. They are solid and sturdy chair and will last for many generations so they make a great heirloom and hence in investment. This particular set have just come back from the restorers where they were re-polished and upholstered in white so they are ready to use. The backs are hand carved with the typical Chippendale motif and the overall craftsmanship is wonderful to make for a very strong chair. Of course the trademark to these stunning chair is the ribbon style back splat motif. We have matching tables available for these chairs for sale right now on Ebay so please check our store page or email us for more information. We have pictured this set around a English Regency pedestal dining table in mahogany and I hope you will agree how handsome the set looks. Of course if you were to buy a set of chairs and the table we would sort you out a great deal with the price. Chippendale, Thomas (1718-1779), English furniture designer and cabinetmaker whose name has become the generic label for furniture of the 1750s and 1760s. The son of a Yorkshire joiner, he probably served a family apprenticeship before seeking his fortune in London. He established a workshop there around 1749, later moving to spacious premises in St Martin's Lane, at the hub of the London furniture trade. His partner, James Rannie, probably financed the business. In 1754 Chippendale published The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker's Director by subscription. This was a book of engraved designs for a wide variety of household furniture in the fashionable styles of the time, including the Rococo, Chinese, and Gothic tastes. It was reissued in 1755 and, with additions in the newly emerging Neo-Classical style, between 1759 and 1762. The Director established Chippendale's reputation as a leading cabinetmaker and ensured his lasting influence. It was the most distinguished of all the 18th-century furniture design books and the first to provide a comprehensive survey of the styles in vogue. Chippendale's considerable business (he employed about 50 skilled craftsmen) was not without setbacks: in 1755 the cabinet shop was severely damaged by fire, and the death of Rannie in 1766 led to financial problems. Although relatively little is known of Chippendale's private life and although he never achieved the gentlemanly status of some of his contemporary cabinetmakers, his firm produced a quantity of fine furniture for noble and wealthy patrons, and this is well documented. For some he both designed and provided complete interior schemes and it is known that he furnished interiors designed by Robert Adam. Some of Chippendale's most important furniture, ranging from early Director pieces to those executed in the Neo-Classical style of the late 1760s and 1770s, can still be seen in the houses for which it was commissioned. Notable examples are Dumfries House, Ayrshire; Wilton House, Wiltshire; Aske Hall, Nostell Priory, Harewood House, Newby Hall and Burton Constable in Yorkshire; Mersham le Hatch, Kent; Paxton House, Berwickshire; and Petworth House, Sussex. Chippendale's eldest son, also Thomas (1749-1822), continued the business and maintained its reputation as one of the leading cabinetmakers of the late 18th century.
