For sale is a lovely Arts & Crafts Oak and Rush seated chair in original condition.

- The chair is by William Birch of High Wycombe, a supplier to *Liberty & Co of London. The furniture maker started in the 1840s.
- The design cues are well recognised with extended uprights with capping, allied with the turned ringed / banding to lower uprights, legs and stretchers. The ring-turning in particular is characteristic of William Birch design.
- The chair has its original rushwork and is in good used condition, with the oak being solid with a lovely patina from use. These rustic inspired chairs have a strong reputation for good design and construction from the late 19th and early 20th century as a classic Arts & Crafts design piece.

A solid and stylish Arts & Crafts chair from a recognised maker.
