The handsome original russet painted beech and pine framed open armchair with an attractive worn colour and patination to the paint, having a bar back to undulating curved and scrolled arms, with a two plank seat, the whole on block legs joined by stretchers, surviving from the second quarter of the nineteenth century.

With a good honest colour and deep patination to both the wood and the paint, this well used and cherished chair is stable and roomy and there is only a very little movement in the joints. The surfaces are beautifully authentic and appealing.

The primitive but well executed build and colour to the paint is very much of the traditional farmhouse in the second quarter of the nineteenth century.

An evocative vernacular armchair with super arms and perfect for an entrance hall or quiet corner.
