This is a very good quality set of 6 antique oak country farmhouse ladder-back rush seated kitchen dining chairs, circa 1910, in excellent original condition, attributable to the Lancashire region of England. This is an original set and not matched together. The set consists of 6 side chairs. All chairs boast graduated wavy shaped back splats above hand woven seats. The base of the chairs feature turned ash legs on a pad foot base. Twin beech stretchers connect all four legs for additional support to the chair base (beech was used in legs and stretchers because of its strong properties). The front stretcher, which is constructed of elm, is heavy and turned – a good sign of quality. All chairs are made from top quality ash and elm, they are firm in joint and do not wobble. The chairs are heavy in weight, which is a good sign of quality.
The chairs feature a rich as and elm dark brown colour. As they boast the original polish, they have a fantastic colour and patination this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning they have received.
These chairs would look superb in the kitchen or dining room. They would certainly grace any home and are a great investment as they are extremely functional. So don’t miss out your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
