Richard Charles 4 Victorian Rosewood Dining Chairs
Richard Charles Victorian Rosewood Dining Chairs. Set 4 rosewood dining chairs, circa 1865, The cartouche shaped backs with foliate carving and a floral splat, the serpentine fronted stuffed seats covered in nailed velvet, the moulded seat rail with a central carved medallion, on hipped cabriole legs with tapering carved beads.
These chairs are very distinctive with their carved details. They are designed, and also probably made, by Manchester based Richard Charles (1823-1893). Some of his work is associated with the Aesthetic Movement, but not all, and these chairs are more traditionally based. The design can be seen in the Antique Collectors Club book, first published 1977, ‘Pictorial Dictionary of British 19th Century Furniture Design’, page 225.

I bought this book as I used to holiday in Cornwall as a child, my son now lives in mid Cornwall and my family come from Cornwall. It is fascinating to read how the area was in times past, what attractions were of interest and available and what roads were in use.
The book arrived in good condition and as stated online.
Very pleased with purchase.
I have bought this toast rack as a gift and it is just as described online and true to the photographs. I have cleaned it up and it is looking amazing. It was packaged well with another item I bought at the same time, and arrived in good time.
Another great buy from Kernow Furniture. I look at the website weekly for more super gifts and items of interest.
Awesome item and great service once again - thank you.
Very pleased with my stunning mirror, and although it is very very fragile it arrived in perfect condition.
