Rare 19th Century Tavern, Or Clerks, Chair (England, circa 1860)


An Extremely Rare Mid 19th Century English Country
Tavern Chair, Or High Clerks Chair, Having Elegant
Turned Upright Spindles To Bowed Back Over
Superbly Figured Saddle Shaped Seat Raised
On Elegant Tall Turned Legs And Stretchers

(Every now and again we come across something we
absolutely love and of a design which we have not come
across before. This chair is exactly that. The overall design
is typical of a mid 19th century smokers bow, or captains,
chair but of course it stands on much taller than normal
legs. It is almost certainly not a Childs high chair as the
width and depth dimensions would mean any small child
sitting in it would get be lost. It is certainly a chair made
for adults to sit in and we bought it simply because we love
the overall quality, uniqueness, design, patina and colour.
It would of course now make the most perfect focal and
talking point in any room with no doubt every person that
sees it intrigued as to what it’s original use could have
been. From a functional point of view we think there are
many places it could be used, but it would certainly work
well at a tall desk, modern kitchen breakfast bar/island
or even pulled up to a home bar. It would also be a good
addition to a games room or similar.)
