The back splats are exceptionally finely carved. The width of the chairs is slightly more generous than in most dining chairs of the period, and combined with the saddle seat this provides extra sitting comfort.
The set includes two armchairs and eight side chairs. Four side chairs of later date accompany the set to make up fourteen chairs altogether.
Note: Some upholstery rails have been replaced.
