This is a fine quality antique English harlequin set of 12 ash, elm and beech hoop / stick back kitchen-dining chairs, including two armchairs, circa 1880 – 1920, from the late Victorian period onwards, 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.
