Living in Chilliwack, I'm able to see in person the furniture at Antiques by Design. The furniture is always top quality and good value.

Carved Man Of The Mountain Quartered Oak Dining Chairs
Stunning set of 6 R J Horner Griffin carved Man of the Mountain quartered Oak dining chairs. The set consists of one arm and 5 side chairs all professionally refinished and they are impressive. Where to begin to describe these chairs...how about the meticulously carved & pierced pediment on the backs with scrolling foliage C scrolls and the shield with the iconic Horner egg as well as the winged griffins on either end. The heavy back posts finished with carved hanging bell flowers on either side of the newly upholstered padded backs. How about those arms which are so elegant with the upturned roll at the back post and as they gently sweep to the front finished with carved top edge and ending on acanthus carved roll front. Talk about a comfortable place to rest your arms. Maybe the most impressive part of this chair is the hand carved Man of the Mountain on the front posts ending with bell floral carved panel and set on a magnificently carved paw foot. The seats are padded and finished under with gadroon carved seat frame. The chairs have H shaped stretchers
