This is a fine quality harlequin set of 6 ash, elm and beech wheel, hoop & stick back kitchen-dining chairs, circa 1950, in excellent original condition. These chairs 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 and 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 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.
The chairs 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 kitchen 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 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 glued and French polished in our workshops. The chairs retain the original patination, which means they boast a stunning colour. This is a harlequin (matched) set and therefore there is some variation in the colour and size of the chairs. There are no breaks to the backs or legs 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.
