This large set of chairs is in excellent condition and exhibit details associated with some of the finest Boston examples. The chairs have sabre legs front and back and moldings cover all the stiles and seat rails. Each curved crestrail has a panel of crotch mahogany veneer and is puncuated with carved acanthus leaves on either side. The back splats are composed of undulating scrolls centering a carved rosette.
