This is a good quality pair of antique English 17th Century style oak Wainscot hall / side chairs, circa 1920, in excellent original condition. The wainscot chair was fashionable in the 17th century and was deemed a high status symbol for any household. The split-arched pediment is decorated with foliate carvings, with a pierced central crown, flanked by Tudor style carved rose “ears”. The carved panel below incorporates a vase of trailing flowers, beneath a rope arch. The chairs come with tie-on red draylon cushions, finished with gold piping, which can be tied to the backrest of the chairs. However the chairs are perfectly comfortable with or without them. The chairs are raised on baluster turned front legs, united by a turned front stretcher and twin bar stretchers to the rear block legs; with a further bar stretcher, uniting the rear legs – this all ensures the chairs are very sturdy.
The chairs boast a rich brown oak colour. As these chairs retain their original polish, they have stunning colour and patination; this cannot be recreated if the chairs are re-polished.
The chairs would look superb in a variety of rooms from the hallway to the bedroom. They would certainly grace any home and are a great investment as they are extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
