Mackintosh's designs and the Glasgow school's influence on design - all the features of a classic arts and crafts Liberty chair which was first introduced c1890. These chairs were made with and without arms, and this one has arms. The base is the famous Morris Rush Seat. Please remember a fireside chair is meant to have a low seat to warm yourself as you come in. A highly collectable, rare and original piece, this chair came from a farm here in the Yorkshire Dales.
The frame is solid with no movement, there is no woodworm or damage and I believe this is its original rush seat. There is a very beautiful inlaid detail to the back of the chair, hardly noticeable but absolutely stunning detail a very rare find indeed. This is an absolutely beautiful little bedroom or fireside chair and would be perfect for the home, display or a prop. Measuring approximately 84cm High 30cm from floor to seat 47cm Deep 48cm wide Collection welcome from Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales.
