Scottish Birch Country Chair
A mid 19th century Scottish birch wood high back arm chair.
Very similar “Glasgow Pattern” arm chairs can be seen in the “Scottish Vernacular Furniture” book by Bernard Cotton, pages 178-184.
The arm chair has a much higher back than normal with vertical splats and a shaped cross rail.
The joints are pegged and the arm supports have a single handmade screw to each side.
The solid birch seat and cross rails that make this a strong chair.
The chair is an excellent original waxed colour, the tips of all four legs have been spliced possibly because of wear and rot in the past. (Circa 1850)
Height 112cm (44 inches)
Width 54cm (21.3 inches)
