Scottish Glasgow pattern armchair c.1880.

- Stained birch to simulate more expensive mahogany, in a dark stain throughout with a softwood seat.
- This chair has the distinct component features of a Glasgow pattern, lowland joined chair from the second half of the 19th Century.
- The chair has a broad curved top rail between the two extended back uprights with a simple curved centrally placed cross splat with upward sweeping shaping.
- The rear legs and uprights are curved ensuring the back reclines for comfort.
- The very elegant 'Crane-necked' or 'Grecian' arms are supported on turned baluster sections leading to the front tapered legs.
- An identical chair is shown in Cotton (2008) Scottish Vernacular Furniture.
- The chair has lived a life of hard utility as a kitchen armchair, it is in good solid condition but has had historic repair to the seat underneath and age related wear throughout.

Ready for continued utility and in an elegant design for such functional vernacular furniture.
