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. The side 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 utility chair, ideal for daily use in the kitchen. The armchairs are of two different designs and size (also known as “his” and “her size chairs). One chair reflects the design of the side chairs, designed with an ash hoop back rail and arms, with a saddle shaped elm seat. The other, larger armchair features a taller, curved two-tier back connected to wraparound arms – however, the larger armchair remains very much at-home within the set and does not detract from the other chairs. 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 stick back dining 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.

These stick back dining 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.
