Two 19th century yew wood and elm Windsor arm chairs.
The two chairs are very similar with shaped elm wood seats and yew wood turned legs, back splats and spindles.
The Gent’s chair is stamped E. Gabbitass Worksop, Elizabeth Gabbitass took over her husband’s chair business, that started in 1822, in 1839 after he died.
