I inherited them from my uncle after he died in November 2019. These would have been in the house from Princess Dianas birth right up to her later teen years, the good lady as we know started dating Prince Charles around the age of 16 years old so chances are she left before the chairs did. These chairs have been expertly restored back to the original condition, the leather upholstery had dried and become unusable, we had a sample sent to the finest leather tannery in the country where they matched the hides and the colour exactly, they were then reupholstered by a third-generation Victorian trained upholsterer.
The frames were then cleaned and French polished by again the finest traditional French polisher in the industry, these have been a no expense spared conservation restoration project. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
