Group of Three George III-Style Mahogany Chairs

19th century, comprised of a pair of Chippendale-style side chairs, each with an earred and foliate-carved crest over a pierced ribbon-patterned splat, the padded seat raised on cabriole legs headed by acanthine carving and ending in foliate toes, h. 40-1/2", and an Irish Georgian armchair with an eagle-carved crest over a shield paneled splat, all within a floral-carved frame, joined by scrolling eagle's-head arms to the shaped slip-in seat, raised on cabriole legs headed by masque carving and ending in ball-and-claw feet, h. 40-1/2".


All chairs are in quite good condition, all with minor mars and wear, most beneath the polished surfaces. All with tight legs and no apparent repairs to the legs. Pair of side chairs: One chair with a shallow chip on the back side of the splat, near the center, about 1/2" x 1-3/8". The base of one rear leg with scrubbed off finish. Armchair: One arm is very slightly loose at its joint with the stile. The upholstery is worn and sagging in the center.
