Mayhew & Ince: A Pair of George III Mahogany Library Armchairs
england , circa 1765
A very fine pair of George III mahogany Gainsborough or library armchairs, of excellent proportion and generous in size, in the manner of Ince & Mayhew. Each chair with an arched padded and upholstered back with shaped upholstered arms with carved beaded down curved supports above a similarly padded and upholstered serpentine fronted seat, standing on square channeled and beaded front legs, with splayed back legs, all joined by H-stretcher, and terminating in castors. The arms with carved roundels to the hand rests. Of very fine colour throughout - a particularly elegant pair of library chairs.
