Each chair has a gently curving top rail carved with a central shell and foliage, the tops of the sinuous side rails curve round to join the top of the wide inverted baluster splat. The front rail of the seat is carved with a shell, as are the knees, which are also carved with scrolls and husks. The cabriole front legs terminate in ball and claw feet; the splayed back legs have pad feet. With drop-in seats upholstered in floral needlework. The restrained carving of these chairs dates them to about 1720. Details such as the shells, husks and scrolls to the knees can be seen on other chairs of the period but the quality and colour of the veneers and the highly refined carving make them exceptional examples of the period.
