Circa 1880, set of 8 ash Lancashire dining chairs, consisting of 2 armchairs and 6 side chairs. One of the armchairs is slightly lower than the other. It has either been cut or been made that way. The chairs have 5 shaped splats on the back held in place by beech uprights. Each of the splats have a slight arch and are shaped underneath. The chairs have the original rattan seats, in various conditions. At the front of the chair there is a large turned cross stretcher in ash which is quite bulbous and there are simple stretchers at the side. The back legs are square and the front legs have a square block at the top over a turned section and finish with a simple stylised foot which sits on a half sphere. The chairs have good character and colour.
