About this item


R. Crosby & Sons Aesthetic Dining Chairs, Set of 6

Our reference: TSP1062

Offered here for sale is a set of six walnut and ebonised dining chairs in the Aesthetic Movement style and dating to the late Victorian period. All chairs are stamped by the manufacturer R. Crosby & Sons Liverpool, who advertised as a "first class chair maker" in The Furniture Gazette of 1882. They operated at 8 Cases Street and 63 Great George Street with works at 56 & 58 Rathbone Street and showrooms at 9a Elliot Street. The shaped cresting rails of the chair backs feature boxwood and burr walnut marquetry panels and also incised decoration. The bow fronted seats are raised on turned tapered and fluted forelegs. The non-sprung seats are all entirely traditionally re-upholstered from the frame by The Sitting Place. They are then covered in Meadow Fruit fabric (charcoal and green colourway) by GP&J Baker. These high quality and decorative dining chairs would look lovely in a dining room setting decorated in the Aesthetic period style. Note that colours on screen may differ slightly from the actual colours.
