Full Description
The back with large fielded oak panels set within a substantial chamfered frame with a most attractive arched top. The side boarded panels solid oak with curved arms over lovely double arched feet.

The whole peg jointed, well shaped and made by a very skilled hand in c. 1880

The back is finished and so the settle was probably intended to be placed close to a fireplace, the arched top and winged sides to stop drafts and hold the heat as in Georgian wing back chairs.

The inner arm supports are oak also and were covered in a burgundy and gold fabric which was torn and dirty so I have had these newly upholstered in a good quality chenille velvet in similar colourway and pattern to the original. These are well padded and comfortable and part of the original design of the settle.

A rarely seen large and most attractive Arts and Crafts settle of excellent quality and rich consistent colour and in very good condition throughout with only minor scuffs and marks consistent with age and use.

Heavy, and robust, the original seat very solid and comfortable.

The settle will fit through a standard doorway but please consider turning space in corridors etc. when measuring.
