Object History


Object Literature

This is similar in design to that of an Oxford elbow chair with its lath back and proportions. It would have been a staple of the Victorian working farmhouse.

A particularly well-crafted and honest chair with a beautiful finish.

Object Condition

The chair is in good stable condition and can be used daily with solid joints and construction. It has a super colour and beautiful patina throughout.
