Pair of 19th C Painted Scottish Barber's Chairs
We love these chairs for their unusual sculptural form, gently reclining backs, and original brass and steel towel racks. When we first bought them, they were a mess, but did have layers and layers of decrepit leather and horsehair stuffing, so we knew them to be the real deal. Now, they have been fully restored and, in a black matte finish, are ready for your designer touch! Completely sturdy and very comfortable, they would be stunning flanking a fireplace, on either end of a dining table, or in a contemporary seating area. Plus, what conversation pieces! The wood (likely oak), brass, and steel chairs are in excellent condition with minor wear consistent with age and use. These are unsigned but surely made by Lorimer & Moyes, Glasgow, CA 1850s.
Scotland, CA 1850.
