s6422 & s6425

 A set of nine quarter-sawn oak dining chairs designed by W R Lethaby, with drop-in seats, with two moulded and dowelled slats to the shaped top rail and two similar slats from the front of the seats to the shaped front apron, also having chamfered legs and carved finials to the uprights, circa 1900, 109cm (43in) high. William Richard Lethaby (1857 - 1931) designed an imposing version of this chair for the Master of The Art Workers' Guild of which he was a founder member and later Master. He was the founder of the Central School of Arts & Crafts in 1896 and was appointed the first Professor of Design at The Royal College of Art in 1901. Both Morris & Co and Liberty sold versions of this chair.
