Primitive Chair

For BADA Week 2023, Shaw Edwards Antiques is planning an exhibition of Primitive Chairs which will be displayed at the CADA Fair at Compton Verney.

The exhibition will include at least 10 chairs, mostly Welsh in origin, with highlights including this primitive comb-back chair with a thick two section seat of oak. Dating to circa 1780-1800, the chair has built up a wonderful patination and surface quality over time.
