Fabulous original Orkney Chair, mixed woods of Pine and Mahogany, reeded decoration on the uprights, arm rests, and front panel, in Georgian style, 14 inches to seat height, designed as a Ladies chair, underarm panels, straw and seagrass back in reasonable , and certainly useable condition .
This chair in particular , over modern Orkney chairs and even David Kirkness 1880, has so much evidence of "croft life " in the 19thC, that makes it and chairs like it very rare to find, in the 21stC, just a wonderful piece of cultural history.
