A very rare pair of William & Mary black japanned highback hall chairs, the arched back with stylized ducal coronet and fleur-de-lis above caned back with fluted column supports richly decorated with gilt scrolling and polychrome foliate details, the caned seat with further gilt and painted decoration above shaped legs and arched cross-stretcher, all with rich giltwork detailing.

These side chairs are en suite with a pair of armchairs previously sold by Mallett's, which are illustrated in 'Mallett's Great English Furniture' by Lanto Synge, 1991, p23, fig 10. They have the identical stylised coats of arms in the crestings, incorporating what appear to represent double headed eagles.
