An antique peasant spinning chair in original green paint. Circa 1890. The legs are original and delightfully expressive. There is a slight tilt to the seat which is intentional. Normally used on earthen floors by the spinner with her distaff. The peasant chairs of Transylvania play with anthropomorphic or zoomorphic suggestions in the carving of the back rest which give them the sense of character. This one is unusually made of walnut and the patina and wear where it has been handled and sat upon is beautiful. It is a typical primitive variation on the Transylvanian stool. This also unusually has a makers stamp on the underside.

H: 80cm (31.5 in)

Initially inspired by the interior at The Mint in Rye (our 15th century holiday let in Rye, East Sussex) and requests to purchase items by clients while staying, we decided to start sourcing and selling so people could do just that.

Based between London and East Sussex we have built up a network of specialist sources that we pull from to create the unique edit that is The Mint in Rye.  We offer a mix of vintage textiles, primitive furniture, curios, first edition books, vintage film posters and antique carved oak.  These are not chosen for their age, but very much for their aesthetic appeal.  The visual still remains true to The Mint interior style, but has broadened to include vintage elements that have the same unique view point.

To view the collection, please contact Barrie on +44 (0)7714 764708.  Dependant on the pieces you are interested in, they may be in East Sussex or in London.
