Box House Antiques offers a set of four late 18th century satinwood painted armchairs attributed to Seddon, Sons & Shackleton, c.1790.
According to the Hampshire dealership: “It is not only quite difficult to find a single period chair of this type, but extremely rare for a complete set of four to have survived some 230 years. The majority of chairs of this model will be late-19th century or Edwardian; often sold in pairs.”
Retaining their mostly original polychrome decoration with Prince of Wales’ feathers, summer flowers and musical trophies, the chairs are catalogued as being in superb condition and are ready to use. The set is priced at £27,000.
