About

Late 18th century country ladder back armchair from ash wood. Typical of chairs attributed to the Lancashire parish of Wigan, this chair features turned uprights, with domed and nipple finials, connected by wavy line slats and boldly turned stretchers and legs. The patina of its original finish is excellent and the later rushing on its seat is in good order.
