A charming matched pair of Welsh early 19th Century oak side chairs. This delightful pair of antique chairs have a wonderfully rich colour and patination that is only acquired with age and loving care. Both chairs are raised on turned front legs, with well patinated stretchers. The back splats are decorated with a simple decorative heart motif and topped with a gracefully shaped cresting rail. Simple but charming decorative shapes such as the hearts used on these antique chairs are typical of Welsh country furniture. One of the chairs is signed with the initials "RB". The chairs are sound, solid and in good order, there is evidence of some minor historic strengthening repair to the underside of one seat, this can be seen in the photographs. Two attractive and highly decorative antique chairs that would add character and style to any interior scheme, cleaned and waxed ready for the home.
