Having an extraordinary enclosed box-seat, below a vase-shaped solid splat and shaped 'eared' stay-rail, a boarded seat above a single flush-panelled cupboard door, flanked by two small drawers, atop a pair of short drawers.

Provenance: Unidentified collection or probable exhibition label to rear (BM 023), together with a handwritten possible accession number.

The timber used for the back has been identified as mountain/hill grown sessile oak from North Wales, whilst pedunculate oak has been used for the box-base. The chair's wonderful rich colour is a natural finish: the acidity in the soil has changed the hue of the heartwood to a glowing red-brown. The rear uprights have been formed using a side axe and the stay-rail is frame sawn riven timber.

Shipping P.O.A. Subject to quotation and will be charged separately.

Prices exclude custom clearance fees which, where appropriate, will be charged directly to the client by your receiving courier, importer or government.
