Full Description
A beautiful oak lambing chair in solid sawn wainscot oak and dating from around 1730

In very good original condition, peg jointed throughout and with a lovely even colour and warm glow to the oak with attractive silvery medullary rays.

The drop in seat pad is newly upholstered in a Sanderson’s Lazlo cut velvet – high quality and heavyweight - with a lovely country cottage pattern in crimson, black and old gold.

Well padded and comfortable, a very nice gentle rake to the back and winged sides to keep the drafts away.

In very good condition throughout, solid and sturdy. Some old worm holes to the inner edge of one arm support – not significant and long since dead. Some wear to the bottom of the feet and a small scarfed in section to one rear upright at floor level. Pegs appear original throughout, the back panel chamfered and fielded, all hand made and with attractive chamfering to both front supports and to the framing around the back, front and side panels. Very light surface marks and dents consistent with age and use.

A really charming provincial lambing chair, perfect for snuggling up in and drawing close to the fire on a chilly winter’s night.
