This is a fine quality true pair of ash, elm and beech kitchen-dining hoop, stick & wheel back arm chairs, circa 1950, in excellent original condition. These armchairs feature six spindles and a central wheel back splat to the inside of a single piece oval shaped ash moulded back rail, supported by two further supporting spindles at the back of the chair, for added strength. The back rail is connected to the saddle shaped elm seats via shaped arms on ring turned supports. The armchairs sit on turned beech legs connected by beech ‘H’ stretchers, which makes them a firm utility chair, ideal for daily use in the kitchen. This style of chair first originated in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. The armchairs 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.
The armchairs feature a rich brown ash and elm colour. As they boast the original polish, they have a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through the years of care and cleaning they have received.
These wheel back arm chairs would look superb in the kitchen or dining room. They would certainly grace any home and are a great investment they are extremely functional. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.

The armchairs 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 armchairs have been glued and French polished in our workshops. They retain the original patination, which means they boast a stunning colour. This is a true pair and therefore there is some variation in the colour and size of the chairs. There are no breaks to the backs, legs or arms of the chairs. The armchairs sit firm on the ground and do not wobble. They are well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
