One of a pair of carved and turned walnut chairs in the style of the 17th century. The chairs date to around 1855, when revival styles were becoming increasingly popular. The velvet upholstery would originally have been a dark red, which has since faded to brown. The chairs are stamped on the seat lining 'Monbro fils âiné', the Paris firm who furnished and maintained John and Josephine Bowes's houses in France.
