Late 18th Century Elm and Pine Rocking Lambing Chair

About

Well proportioned 'one of a kind' rocking lambing chair in elm and pine from England, circa 1790 - 1800. The chair is in very good original condition, with a beautiful patina. Very sturdy and heavy, structurally sound. The chair is very comfortable, the rocking position is attentional kept in a very limited range. The original invoice of the purchase from an English specialist dealer in early oak and country furniture will be included. The lamb pillow was purchased in England and is included. The lambing chair is a wood boxed form of winged armchair rarely having upholstery. Storage under the seat is common as a drawer or compartment. The historic lambing chair is an example of regional vernacular furniture prevalent in the Lancashire and Yorkshire Dales in England, circa 1750–1850. The name derived from the prevalence of sheep farming in the region where the chair was used by shepherds at lambing time. The great variety of individual designs found in this group of chairs suggests that they were made by cabinet makers or carpenters for an individual order, rather than working in the tradition of the turner who made many chairs in the same design.
