French Leather Dining Chairs, circa 1750
The most absolutely incredible set of 18th century French dining chairs we have ever had and I can only image what the chateau must have looked like. This set of six was exquisitely crafted from the finest figured French walnut, which was then finished in a traditional French polish. We spent almost 200 man hours carefully disassembling each chair while restoring every connection, all the while keeping the chairs integrity in mind. Each piece of leather was specially treated and then reinforced on the backside so that it will never separate. Approximately seventy percent of the leather is original to the chairs and was only replaced where necessary with hand colored leather from our finishing department. Only the best materials were used in their rebuilding including genuine horsehair.
