Antique Country Chairs are more characterful and usually from the periods of Georgian and Victorian in woods such as Oak, Fruitwood, Elm or Pine as these were locally sourced woods. These chairs will have years of use and come with a lovely patina and here at Antiques World, we preserve this by sympathetically waxing using natural beeswax. They 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 and the beauty about country antiques like this, is you can use them and not worry about them being marked as you simply wax over if they get scuffed. Our large antique furniture showroom is based in Clitheroe in Lancashire where we display lovely selections of Country furniture for sale along with more finely finished pieces so you are welcome to view either online or in our showroom as we get new stock arriving daily.
