REF No. B63871
English, Circa 1835.

Height: 95 cm / 37 inches

An Important Set of Fourteen Late Regency 'Gothic Revival' Oak Dining Chairs, comprising two armchairs and twelve side chairs. Each chair back with pierced tracery headed by acorns and with cluster columns above five pierced trefoils within moulded uprights with ball finials, the molded over scrolled arms with baluster turned supports above squared section decorated with outfacing carved lion masks, the leather covered padded and buttoned seats with moulded seat rails and on turned and tapered panelled legs.

The Gothic style enjoyed a revival that began in the 1760's, with Horace Walpole leading the way at his infamous Villa 'Strawberry Hill'. His whimsical style was to develop into a more historically based movement in the second quarter of the nineteenth century, when architects and craftsmen adopted less elements of fantasy from the Medieval and more historical elements, such as spires, lancet arches and windows, into designs for architecture, interior design and furniture. The rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament by A.W.N. Pugin and Sir Charles Barry in the High Gothic manner, following the fire in 1835, led to this style being widely adopted.
