The side chairs feature six spindles to the inside of a single piece oval shaped ash moulded back rail, supported by a two further supporting spindles at the back of the chair, for added strength. The back rail is connected to the single piece saddle shaped elm seats and turned beech legs connected by “H” beech stretchers, which makes them a firm utility chair, ideal for daily use in the kitchen. The armchairs are designed in a similar manner, with an ash hoop back rail and arms and a saddle shaped elm seat. Furthermore, they boast open carved central vertical splats, while one of the armchairs also features a crinoline stretcher, the other having a “H” stretcher. This style of chair first originated in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. The chairs feature a stunning rich colour with fabulous grain configuration visible on the seats. These chairs boast the classic country styling; they would be at home in either a traditional or contemporary setting and they consume very little space.

Condition Report:
The chairs are in excellent original condition, with nominal old use marks to the leading edges (e.g. seats, back and legs) but nothing significant considering the age of them. The chairs have been polished in our workshops and means therefore exhibit a warm rich colour. This is a harlequin (matched) set and therefore there is some variation in the colour and size of the chairs. The chairs sit firm on the ground and do not wobble. They are well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
