Antique Country Chairs are more characterful and usually from the periods of the 18th Century Georgian and 19th Century Victorian eras. These would have been constructed in woods such as Oak, Fruitwood, Elm or Pine as this was locally sourced timbers in Britain. These antique chairs will have had years of use and come with a lovely patina. We preserve this original finish and charm by sympathetically waxing using natural beeswax. Antique country chairs can come in many forms from a Windsor chair, to a ladder back with either a figured solid seat or rush seating. These types of antique chairs will suit most country homes or Cottages, sat around a rustic dining table in your kitchen. The beauty about country antiques like this, is that you can use them and not worry about them being marked as you simply wax over if they get scuffed, ideal if you have a family with children.
