In good condition with light wear

A set of six solid walnut (dining room) chairs manufactured during the Dutch William III-period about 1860-1880 by the furniture manufacturer Horrix.

This famous furniture makers family has been well-known from the (second half) 18th century for their specific qualities of both form and material use in their furniture.
In the 60s of the 18th century, Matthijs Horrix, who was originally from Germany, moved to the Hague and from the 90s onward, has carried out multiple extensive assignments for the Huis Ten Bosch palace.
In 1809, Pieter Paulus Horrix, the nephew of Mathijs, took over the workshop of his uncle. He manufactured different furniture for the Royal Palace Paleis Noordeinde.
The Horrix brothers are the founders of the "Anna Palouwna furniture factory". Willem Horrix Senior was in charge of the business aspects, Matthieu Horrix Senior was responsible for the designs. Later, their sons Willem junior and Matthieu junior would also get involved in the company that kept expanding its business.
In 1856, the brothers’ company was the first furniture factory in the Netherlands to have a steam engine. Because of their renowned quality, the factory became the biggest furniture factory of the Netherlands.
In 1883, King William III involved Willem Horrix Jr. in the furnishing of the "Oranje Nassau's Oord" in Renkum.
But after the death of Matthieu Sr. in 1889, the sons don’t find the economic justification to continue the factory. In 1890, the production of the glorious Horrix lineage stops after 4 generations.

Typical of this style period is reverting to styling features/decoration forms from previous periods and to combine these together. Mostly this is disproportionate and exuberant, but this set of chairs clearly shows the quality and balance of the design, use of materials and refined details! The openwork backrest has the elegant C-shapes, inspired by the Rococo period, which flawlessly pass into tight straight lines, from the Neo-classicism period. All parts of the backrest and front seating part are deepened and additionally accentuated by the blackened edges. At the front, the chairs rest on refined twisted legs which are also fitted with blackened details. All seats are constructively fine/solid and were recently re-upholstered with (real) leather upholstery and brass pivot nails like it must have looked in the 19th century as well.

The woodwork has the expected minor wear and tear and the blackened details are also jaded as a result of use (this varies per chair). In order to freshen up the woodwork again and to get a silky shine, they could be treated with a white wax. This would also make most of the wear and tear disappear. A very nice set that, with a little attention and due to the famous "Horrix" quality, can be enjoyed for many years to come by the real enthusiast!

    tafel is origineel "uit de tijd" maar de conditie valt een beetje tegen, met name de poot heeft veel schadeplekken, maar daar was de prijs ook naar, dus zal ik niet verder zeuren

    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    Geachte meneer Metselaar, dank voor uw feedback. Spijtig om te horen dat de conditie van de tafel u toch wat tegenvalt en de gebruikssporen/schades u storen. Ondanks dat u de tafel scherp heeft kunnen kopen, zien we wel graag dat u 100% tevreden bent over de gedane aankoop. Zoals vermeld in de beschrijving zou de gehele tafel een keer weer goed in de boenwas gezet moeten worden. Zodat het houtwerk/schades weer gevoed en beschermt worden en de tafel weer diepte en een zijdeglans krijgt. Desgewenst kunnen wij u hierin verder adviseren zodat u van het diner kunt genieten aan een statige tafel!
