A Very Rare Set of Four Fine Quality William IV period Cuban Mahogany Dining Chairs recently upholstered and covered in good quality old Cotton Velvet 
English, circa 1835.

Biography : John James Helsdon is known to have been a London Furniture Dealer, Broker and Appraiser, but we have been unable to find evidence of him having been a Cabinet Maker.
He is first recorded as having premises in Castle Street off the Strand in 1826-28, by 1830 he was at 7 York Street, Covent Garden, and in 1834/5 he moved to 36 Great Queen Street, Lincoln's Inn Fields.

It is extremely rare to find pieces of English Furniture bearing original
Trade Labels.
nly two other pieces with J. J. Helsdon labels are known :
A Mahogany Breakfront Secretaire Bookcase which was sold by Sotheby's in 1968 
A Mahogany Secretaire Abbatant in the French Empire Taste sold by Phillips in 1989.

Condition : Good Showroom condition commensurate with age and use, original finish with some old restorations and recently upholstered and covered in good quality old Cotton Velvet salvaged from the front of house drapes of a West End Theatre.
