Description

A Victorian sycamore, ash and pine stick-back armchair, Irish

The back with bar toprail and angled upright spindles, the curved arms interlocking with the outer back upright, with solid plank seat and splayed legs, originally painted, 60cm wide, 38cm deep, 83cm high. Referred to as a Gibson chair and distinguished from other Irish chairs by the arrangement of the angled sticks in the back, these chairs are generally seen as indigenous to Leinster, a province in the east of Ireland. The Irish characteristic of the arm interlocking with the back uprights is a practical way of giving additional strength to the chair. The origins of the name Gibson are unclear. See Kinmonth, Irish Country Furniture 1700-1900, Yale 1993, page 39, fig 37 for an identical chair.
