8 Very Good 1930s English Oak Dining Chairs


These are of very good quality by English maker Inglesants of Leicester and survive from the early 1930s. Never easy to find a set of 8 matching oak chairs from this era. Inglesants – not a large company, but established 1872 made a variety of quality pieces, borne out by their royal warrant displayed on the labels and were purchased by Waring Gillows. We are talking nice and weighty, top end of its kind.

Most important, apart from the rather nice condition of the chairs, is that they are comfortable. They possess a gentle hint of Art Deco with a slight chisel cut on the dense front legs and an attractive round shield back covered in British racing green leather as are the wide seats. The oak is of a pleasing grain and tone and as you would expect, the craftsmanship is good.

Workshop report - The seats are of similar condition. We have lightly repolished the oak frames. The green leather has no rips just general day to day wear and marks but nothing unattractive. The seats and shield backs are firm and comfortable with no sagging to the seats. Overall the chairs are in a very good, sensible aged condition, well cared for rather than over used. No bad odours.

A very attractive set of 8 matching English oak chairs with a wonderful lived in look which are very useable and ready to place.

Dimensions – Overall: Height 85.5cm x Width 45.5cm x Depth 53cm
Dimensions – Specifically the Seat: Height 45cm x Width 45.5cm x Depth 40.5cm

The collaboration of successful Interior Designer Martina Reitbauer and Ardent Gatherer Wayne Lawless brings to you an exciting and ever evolving selection of items for your home which do not have the constraints of a particular era, no onus on any particular style or a brand agenda to respect.

We take pleasure in gathering pieces from country houses, time-worn factories and auctions travelling extensively to seek out the appealing.
