This is a fine quality harlequin set of four ash, elm and beech hoop / stick back kitchen-dining chairs, circa 1900, from the late Victorian / Edwardian period, in fine original condition. These chairs feature six spindles to the inside of a single piece oval shaped ash moulded back rail, supported by a two further supporting spindles at the back of the chair, for added strength. 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 chair. 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 rustic 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 dark 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 set of chairs.

The chairs are in good 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 condition is commensurate with their age. This is a harlequin (matched) set and therefore there is some variation in the colour and size of the chairs. The chairs have been polished in our workshops. The chairs retain their original polish, which is why there is a lovely deep colour and patination. The chairs sit firm on the ground and do not wobble. They are well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
