Chairback Settee Attributed to James Hicks & Sons.

A late 19th century George II style Cuban mahogany chairback settee of exhibition quality. The maker is attributed as James Hicks of Dublin.

The top rail is worked with harebells and foliage above generously sized solid mahogany back splats that are elaborately covered with a delicate tracery of a distinctly foreign influence. The mythical mask is in full relief and is placed low to avoid discomfort to the sitter. The splats are concave and graceful with out-stretched arms that are finished in lions' heads.

The drop-in seat has recently been re-upholstered in a gold damask fabric and sits above a deep mahogany frieze.

The settee is raised on crisply carved cabriole legs and the knee is decorated with satyr masks above crisply carved ball and claw feet.
