Recently acquired in England, this set of six antique barley twist chairs are a stunning and beautiful find. They would be a wonderful addition to any dining room or breakfast area.
Made from solid oak, the hand turnings on these antique dining chairs are exquisitely done. Each chair boasts a simple, yet elegant look perfect for any room. The barley twist legs on the front and back rest of each chair are thick and really beautifully turned. Also, the back rests have subtle carved decorations to them. Overall a very beautiful design!
These dining chairs were made in England sometime around 1920. Probably commissioned for a wealthy family or estate and then passed down from there. We acquired them near Norfolk. The previous owners have taken very good care of these chairs as is evident by the current good condition.
Antique Barley Twist Chairs Condition
We have chosen a “good” condition rating for these chairs. They are very sturdy and strong and have no wobbles or looseness to them. The wooden stretchers at the bottom ensure the chairs will stay sturdy for years to come. The fabric upholstery is stained and overall just needs to be replaced. This will be easy to do with the pop out seats. The chairs do exhibit minor distressing marks in the form of tiny marks and finish wear throughout that we consider character expected from chairs of this age. We have cleaned the chairs and they are ready to go directly into the home and be used. The floor to seat measurement for these chairs is 19″.
We ship most items via a free curbside delivery but also offer white glove delivery and custom options (contact us if you have special requirements like this). Smaller items usually ship via UPS.
