A rare pair of mid 18th century carved mahogany side chairs attributed to William Hallett, each having a yoke shaped crest rail above a pierced vase shaped splat with typical scroll base to the reverse side and a drop-in seat upholstered in gold and red cut velvet within shaped seat rails; on cabriole legs with acanthus carved knees and scroll corner blocks terminating in cranked acanthus carved hoof pad feet.

Note: These chairs belong to a group of chairs all sharing very similar or identical features such as the distinctive scroll at the back and the unusual cranked hoof pad feet. Other examples in the same group are a set of chairs by Hallett for the dining room at Stanwick in Yorkshire, a set of chairs at Ditchley Park, and a further set for the Earl of Radnor.
