Scottish Horseshoe Back Chair

US$2,400

About

Scottish horseshoe-back chair, circa 1850-1870. This vernacular Windsor style stick-back chair from Argyll, Scotland, features pegged construction and remnants of original earthy red milk paint. Its seat is pine, legs and spindles are elm and the horseshoe back rail is yew wood. Originally created to function as a work or milking chair, its petite proportions make it a great fireside accent or a perfect child's chair.
