This object is eligible for a Certificate of BADA Provenance

A West Country hoop-back chair which is made from ash, beech and with a sycamore seat. It has a wonderful worn finish -original green paint with a later black varnish.

It is very similar to a group of chairs in Bill Cottons book “The English Regional Chair” which are attributed to Cornwall, some are stamped “Eathorne maker Penzance” this one is not stamped, but I think you could confidently say that this chair belongs to that group of chairs.

West Country circa 1830-50


111.7cm high x 50.8cm wide x 40.7cm deep (seat height 45cm)
