Description

An intriguing and uncommon assembly of Welsh slate splitters chairs, crafted using a mix of woods such as Pine, Elm, and Oak.
Dating back to the late 18th or early 19th century, these chairs offer a unique glimpse into the craftsmanship of the time.
For more than 1,800 years, slate quarrying has been a prominent activity in North Wales. The versatile material played a role in constructing segments of the Roman fort in Segontium, Caernarfon, and in the creation of Edward Iís castle in Conwy.
However, it was during the 18th-century Industrial Revolution that the slate industry experienced significant growth and development.
The Caernarfon National Slate Museum showcases an impressive assortment of artefacts and historical information related to this topic.
(Approximate dimensions)
The price is for all of the chairs.
