Very rare to find a pair of these chairs in such great condition.

PROVINCIAL FURNITURE: ‘Provincial” furniture is the term used to describe pieces of furniture that were made in the more rural and rustic parts of the Country involved. Generally speaking, provincial pieces tend to be made from easily accessible local woods such as oak, ash and maple. Designs tended to be simpler in form than pieces made in the major cities. The major cities had greater access to more exotic imported woods and designs tended to be more more intricate and inspired by the prevailing global trends.Wealth also had a large part to play in most provincial pieces. Clearly, the wealthy people of the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries wanted ONLY THE BEST AVAILABLE and would buy their furniture from high-end city retailers or manufacturers and often had then specifically made for them on commission. Ordinary folk could not afford this but would instead rely upon local cabinet makers for their furniture needs.
