A pair of 19th century Scottish 'Glasgow Pattern' chairs in birchwood.
Sturdy, comfortable and a wonderful colour with original dyked seats.
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.
