Wimbledon-Furniture is delighted to offer for auction this one of a kind fully stamped suite of authorised reproduction Chinese Chippendale Gainsborough chairs and settee from number 10 Downing Street London

Please note the delivery fee listed is just a guide, it covers within the M25 only, for an accurate quote please send me your postcode

There are around 50-100 high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page

The suite is stamped with gold plaques to the base which read as follows

“Reproduced from the original in 10 Downing St London England by kind permission of the RT Hon Sir Harold Wilson K.G O.B.E F.R.S M.P Prime minister 1975

You can see a selection of the chairs here in the “Terracotta Room” if you scroll to the midpoint of the article https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/10-downing-street-a-rare-glimpse-inside-the-prime-ministers-home-a6766591.html

Another set here with H.R.H Queen Elizabeth’s pictures in the background https://www.itv.com/news/2016-09-15/from-your-home-to-the-prime-ministers-take-a-virtual-tour-of-10-downing-street/

If you’re looking for high provenance then you can’t really get much higher than these, they are the only known suite of chairs ever authorised to be copied from the originals in number 10, by repute they were made as the originals are so valuable they didn’t want visiting dignitaries to sit on them, to put this into context a single chair with lots of “attributed to” sold in 2007 for $1,049,000, that was nearly 12 years ago, as seen here


The original suite would be worth in the region of £20-£30 million pounds, we can sympathise with the insurers not wanting tea and coffee stains in the upholstery

This suite has been fully restored to include having some odd little pieces of the carving that were missing replaced from period mahogany, the frames have been sympathetically French polished however the original patina and ware has been left, the seat padding has been renewed, lastly the suite has been upholstered in cream calico with ribbon trim, calico is a base upholstery so the suite is ready to take upholstery of your choosing, I can commission my upholsters should the new owners wish
