This is a pair of antique Glastonbury chairs, English Tudor Revival carved hall seats dating to the early 20th century, c.1900. Exhibiting ecclesiastical and gothic overtones with classic tusked joints, the 'keys' of wood were designed to be removed to simply disassemble the chair for transportation. Ebonised offering a soft, mellow finish. Highlighted with well executed carvings of Latin inscription, the backrests decorated with relief carved roundells. Shaped armrests and chip carved crest rails raised on 'X' frame legs united by a centrepoint stretcher. A desirable pair of chairs with solid joints and construction, delivered waxed, polished and ready for the home.
The eponymous Glastonbury chair has been made for centuries, usually in oak and following a design thought to have first been made for Richard Whiting (1461 – 15 November 1539), an English clergyman and the last Abbot of Glastonbury.
