This is a fine quality antique English Victorian pair of ash, elm and beech Windsor bar & stick country kitchen-dining chairs, circa 1890, in excellent original condition. The chair backs feature four turned spindles, flanked by two larger support spindles below an escalloped curved bar back. The back rail is connected to the single piece saddle shaped elm seats and turned beech legs connected by “H” beech stretchers, which makes them a firm utility chair, ideal for daily use in the kitchen. The stick back 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 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 chair joints have been glued and the wood has been French polished, by hand, to a professional standard, in our workshop. Therefore, the colour and patination of the set are excellent. This is a harlequin (matched) set and therefore there is some variation in the colour and size 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.
