A gorgeous 19th century Scottish 'Glasgow Pattern' armchair in birchwood.
Elegant 'Grecian' arms and curved sawn back legs, so that the back reclines.
Sturdy, comfortable and a wonderful colour.
These types of Glasgow pattern chair were made widely across the lowland regions and were intended equally for tenements in Glasgow and Edinburgh and for cottages and farmhouses in rural areas.
Commonly made in birch and readily stained to simulate mahogany.
