18th Century Welsh "Loving Chair"
Love is in the chair! A simply designed 18th Century oak chair with a pair of "love hearts" lovingly inlaid into the back bar.
The chair itself is an "honest" piece showing signs of use over the years applicable to its years (please see photos). It's sturdy, simple form is greatly enhanced by two "hearts' inlaid to the chair's horizontal back bar.
Originating from Wales, it was almost certainly made by a young Welsh joiner/carpenter for his betrothed, much in the same tradition of Welsh "love spoons".
It makes for a charming, unique and rare item.
I am happy to ship overseas. Enquiries are welcome.
