Evoking the superior designs of Thomas Chippendale, this refined pair of mahogany arm chairs was created by the London firm of Hindley & Wilkinson. These luxuriously carved chairs boast Chippendale's Ribbon Back design, executed with the utmost attention to detail. The talent and genius of Thomas Chippendale's designs dominated the furniture styles of the 18th century. He was the first person to boast such a strong following that an entire style bears his name and not that of a monarch. In 1754, Chippendale published The Gentleman and Cabinetmaker's Director, considered the "bible" of furniture design of its day. This was undobtedly the source to which Wilkinson & Sons turned for their inspiration in the creation of these elegant chairs. The Ribbon Back pattern is featured in The Gentleman & Cabinet Maker's Director by Thomas Chippendale, third edition, plate XV, and listed as Ribband Back.

One chair is stamped "Hindley & Wilkinson, Ltd. / London", and the other is stamped  "Wilkinson & Son / London"
