~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A humble country chair from the north of England, as rugged as it is folky. The plank seat rests on a simple frame of turned legs and stretcher in the front and plain legs and stretchers on the sides and in back. After being connected by a shaped stretcher at seat height, the rear legs cant slightly and extend upwards to a shaped crest, beneath which a tombstone-shaped splat adds to the visual appeal. From two of our favorite pickers.

Lancashire or Derbyshire, ca. 1700

Seat dimensions: 18” X 12”; Seat height: 16”; Overall height: 40”

Price: $345
