Pair of late 19th century Aesthetic Movement Minton tile-back hall chairs

Our reference: TSP1033

Offered here for sale is a very decorative pair of Aesthetic Movement mahogany hall chairs with ebony wood detailing throughout the back, seat and turned forelegs. The tympanum crested head rails lie above spindled galleried backs inset with Minton tiles by leading designer John Moyr Smith, in the blue and brown colourway. The tiles depict Guinevere and Enid (part of Tennyson's Idylls of the King series, c. 1875/6). The chairs are cleaned, waxed and ready to be placed in the home. The hall chairs would look lovely on either side of a hall table.
