A set of open armchairs


RCIN 33498

These chairs were supplied for the King’s new Sitting Room at Windsor Castle, where the style departed from the gothic that dominated in the more public areas, to a French-inspired neo-classicism, suitable for George IV’s collection of eighteenth-century furniture. These chairs were newly made for the space but incorporate earlier French tapestries.

Purchased in 1828
