Object Description

Set of four antique chairs with original leather seats. These four chairs are a good size and deep seated. They are very well made, with H frame stretchers for strength. Interestingly they are constructed with corner stretches at the joints rather than blocks and tennon joints instead of dowels. This pre-Victorian construction method, together with the shape of the back leg, makes us think that they may be by Howard and Sons. Regardless of the maker, they are constructed using expensive construction methods. They are a good cut of oak, solid and dense grained with lots of mudullary rays. Shown here pre-restoration, the colour will be very good once they have been polished with bees wax. They do need to be re webbed which can be done while preserving the original buttoned antique leather.
