Pair of English Lyre Back Mahogany Side Chairs

A great decorative pair of late 18th century George III side chairs. The design of the backs is based on the ancient Greek stringed musical instrument that is undoubtedly the root of the fully developed modern concert pedal harp. The earliest depiction of a lyre is thought to be from Sumeria around 2800 BC.
