This is a fine quality antique English harlequin set of 12 kitchen chairs, constructed of solid ash, elm and beech, with a Windsor hoop & stick back design, from the Victorian period onwards, circa 1890 – 1930, in excellent condition. 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 chair frames have 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.
