south lancashirenorth cheshire carved oak wainscot chair 16801720 and later

South Lancashire/North Cheshire carved oak wainscot chair 1680-1720 and later.



Item Ref



This chair is of excellent quality, with exceptionally fine carving and good colour, but constant use over the centuries has inevitably left its marks.
As these once high status chairs became unfashionable in the 18th century they moved down from gentry houses to farmers and small merchants then into cottages, often being badly treated.
This example has been skilfully restored and reconstructed and is firm, solid and ready to use for another 300 years.
The pierced cresting and superbly carved panel back are typical of chairs from this area, and very similar examples can be seen illustrated in Victor Chinnery's book 'Oak Furniture: The British Tradition'.
DIMENSIONS:39.5 inches tall, 22.5 inches wide, 20 inches deep.
PROVENANCE: Yorkshire collection.
Internal Ref: 8939


Height = 100 cm (40")
Width = 57 cm (23")
Depth = 53 cm (21")
