Item Description

A set of six George III period mahogany dining chairs in the Chippendale style with later upholstered tapestry seats. Circa 1780.


Condition & Details of Restoration

These chairs are offered in generally sound untouched original condition. The polish would benefit from some attention. About half of the ‘paper scroll’ carvings to the end of each cresting rail have been damaged and sanded down (see the detail photos of the cresting rail for a representative example). Minor old worm holes to some seat rails; long dead, and not compromising structural integrity in any way. One of the front legs has an old repair (sound, see detail photograph).



Width 21” (53cm) Depth 21” (53cm) Height (overall) 39″ (99cm) Height (seat) 18” (46cm)


About Us

Peter J. Martin & Son are a long established family firm buying and selling fine quality antique and later furniture.

You are also welcome to visit our other eBay shop pjmartin-antique-furniture where you will find our selection of restored items ready for the home or office

Our main 3,000 sq. ft. warehouse and showroom is located at Unit 21 of The Vinery Complex, just a mile from the beautiful and historic West Sussex town of Arundel. We are also pleased to offer a selection of restored items from our retail area just inside the front door at The Salisbury Antiques Centre, 94 Wilton Rd, Salisbury, Wilts.

The business was founded by Peter Martin some 45 years ago in the picturesque East Berkshire town of Eton – in the shadow of Windsor castle and home to the world famous Eton College – and was joined by son Paul just over 25 years ago.

Peter has now officially retired and handed over the reins to Paul, but continues to work for the business on a consultancy basis. We still have an office in Eton, but relocated the major part of our business to our Arundel warehouse back in 2013.

Please note that while we are always delighted to receive visitors, we do open by appointment only.
