A set of six early 19th century side chairs in kyrelian birch each having a coved back inlaid with a stringing fan, the chairs are supported on sabre front and back legs each with a delicate line of stringing.

This set of chairs utilise the rare highly figured indigenous blond wood that is so typical of Russian furniture from this period. The design of the chairs, however, looks very much to Vienna for inspiration and the work of Joseph Danhauser who is known for his broadly classical style but fanciful chair backs including interlocking scrolls and fan shapes, as can be observed in these chairs.
