R.J. Horner Carved Griffin Parlor Set

Published by under RJ Horner

Brand new imported Baranzelli/Scalamandre silk damask from Italy on this powerful R.J. Horner (attributed) parlor set with carved griffins and outstretched wings. There is a lion mask on each of the seatbacks as well as paw/claw feet. Currently bid up to $4,100 with 8 days to go, I’m sure it will climb much higher. More detail on this set can be seen here.

Outstanding R. J. Horner Dining Chairs

Published by under RJ Horner

This is one of the nicest examples of Horner (attributed) dining chairs I have seen in a while. Not only do you have carved griffin armrests but caryatid figures on the seat backs as well. Very fine carving detail. There are 7 total chairs, one of which is an armchair. These are being sold out of Chester, NY by William J. Jenack Auctioneers and they unfortunately are not providing in-house shipping on this set. Bidding starts at $250 and expected range is $500-$800 which should easily get blown away or else my dining room will suddenly have 15 total dining chairs. More details here.
