Side chair

c. 1790

RCIN 31831

Despite their sophisticated design, these chairs, with their fragile neo-classical ornament, were hardly of practical use. Their bold style is characteristic of the work of French émigré chair-maker François Hervé, who collaborated with the architect Henry Holland at both Carlton House and Brighton Pavilion.

First recorded at Brighton Pavilion in 1823
