Late Regency 19th Century Set of Six George IV Period Carved Gonzalo Alves Dining Chairs

Late Regency 19th Century Set of Six George IV Period Carved Gonzalo Alves Dining Chairs

By William Barrow, senior

England

circa 1826

The chairs have been carved in the solid with tulips, shells, scrolls, knolls and elaborate leaf decoration. The goncalo alves varies in colour with the natural light and dark highlights working beautifully with the profuse carving. The recently re-upholstered drop-in seats stand on reeded and turned legs. All the chairs are stamped with the maker's initials W.B. (William Barrow). The outstanding quality and overall design of the chairs is typical of Gillows work and they could even be 5 years earlier than stated because Gillow were very innovative and ahead of their rivals when it came to design.
