An attractive English elm smokers chair made in 1914 by Wycombe furniture maker W. Birch.

The chair has a good wide elm seat slab (which is wonderfully comfortable) and a lovely time worn patina with deep richness in the wood grain. It sits on turned legs and a double 'H' stretcher for added strength.

The furniture makers stamps show 'W. Birch - Wycombe' and '1914'. Also stamped is a broad arrow and '65' suggesting a history of British military ownership.

A wonderful addition to any dining room, living space or fireside.

Please note that the chair has a repair to the right armrest. Quite well disguised from the top but from the underside there is a metal plate added to strengthen (see photos). Other areas have been glued also. Priced accordingly.

Sturdy, strong and fit for purpose.

H: 80cm | W: 68cm | Seat H: 45cm

From our home in beautiful Bude, North Cornwall, we gather and collate our aged finds. We are on a constant search for eye-catching furnishings of age, style, grandeur and beauty that can be repurposed, rehomed and re-loved.

Our collections are suited to any living, work or retail space in the modern world. It may be unique and it could be unusual, but most importantly if it's oldfangled and we love it, we'll do our very best to acquire it.

All of our pieces have age and history and will most likely show signs of use and wear. Please bear this in mind when making a purchase and be aware that our items are not in 'as new' condition.
